PA pays out for nicking interview

THE NATIONAL Association of Press Agencies announced on 3 August (after the printed Freelance had gone to press) that the Press Association has agreed to pay an undisclosed sum to the Solent News and Photo news agency in settlement of a dispute over breach of copyright.

The freelance agency, backed by NAPA, took on PA after the wire service lifted and distributed Solent's interview with the father of murder victim Jo Yeates.
