We at The Register would like to take a moment to formally denounce the media's despicable smear job of US golfer Tiger Woods over malicious and unproven claims that he cheated on his wife with — at last count — every single able-bodied cocktail waitress living in the Northern Hemisphere today. What right does does the media …
Come on guys... where is the PlayMobil re-enactment of Tiger's late night drive through the neighborhood?
Well luckily for us the injunction itself in all its detail has been up on Wikileaks for a coupla days
That ain't fair!
I just looked at the source of this report...
There's nothing under those censor boxes! Booo!!!
Long term Solution
All the papers have to do is ignore the end of the injunction.
Never mention Mr Wood's name again - when he wins some golf match, just list the winner as [blank].
See how much his endorsements are worth if his name doesn't appear anymore.
They can hardly sue for not mentioning him!
any truth the new tigger woods golf game
is being named as 2000 and 10 inches ?
perhaps we should be more concered that the Trifigura/Carter Ruck thing is back
The injunction was granted on the basis
that the information has not been widely published.
Last time I looked, the world wide web was, er, world wide. Injunct that if you can.
Anyway, it's not as if I actually WANT to see any nude pictures of famous golfers...
If you're going to be dumb, you'd better be touch.
The whole thing gives new meaning to the phrase tiger wood.
Paris because, well, just because.
Is coming form TMZ and The National Enquirer, try and connect to The National Enquirer as it seems to be blocked from the UK, Prince of Darkness blocking a US web site my LHC tin foil hat is firmly in place now for china style blocking of the interweb, try a proxie and it works, strange???
I suspect the lawyers know that they can't really stop people from finding out about the xxxxxxxxx. What I think they are doing is shafting their client for some of his millions. Considering that so much is going on I doubt that TW personally knows that the injunction doesn't really stop anyone from seeing the xxxxxxxxx even if he knew that Schillings were doing what they are doing. Its more likely that his lawyers in the US are getting money in allowing the UK lawyers to make some money.
@Grow the fuck up, ElReg
It's not about Woods, nobody gives a fuck about some golfer.
The point is that an American celebrity screws around, every news outlet in America carries the story and pictures - but because of our 3rd world legal system he can order everybody in Britain to ignore it.
Pity Tony didn't employ Carter-Ruck, he could have banned any mention of the Iraq war or the inquiry.
@Linbox & AC-Eady
watch out with comments critical of Eady J, he'll probably pass an injunction saying El Reg can't publish them or admit the existence of the comments .. or indeed, of the injunction itself. Arkell v Pressdram should apply to this particular case, maybe?
Try censoring metadata, fascists.
It's the HIGNFY missing words round
HIGNFY: Guest Publication: The Register
"A British judge has barred journalists in the country from publishing any **Playmobil reconstructions** that involve Tiger Woods and **the BOFH** or **Paris Hilton** — even though the material supposedly doesn't exist."
Those corporates ditching him would gain more public respect if they supported him.
Oh wait ...
My my, that is interesting information on Wikileaks. Weak minded fools, thinking the injunction wouldn't leak. I shan't say what it is, or my comment will be rejected. But the last page has the interesting bit, after you wade through all the dull and indecipherable legalese.
Accenture on Tiger (official response)
NEW YORK; Dec. 13, 2009 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) today announced that it will not continue its sponsorship agreement with Tiger Woods.
For the past six years, Accenture and Tiger Woods have had a very successful sponsorship arrangement and his achievements on the golf course have been a powerful metaphor for business success in Accenture’s advertising. However, given the circumstances of the last two weeks, after careful consideration and analysis, the company has determined that he is no longer the right representative for its advertising. Accenture said that it wishes only the best for Tiger Woods and his family.
Accenture will continue to leverage its “High Performance Business” strategy and “High Performance Delivered” positioning in the marketplace. The company will immediately transition to a new advertising campaign, with a major effort scheduled to launch later in 2010.
Can I get an injunction against Kate Price Pictures being published?
Anyway seems you cant get caught with your pants down any more....
Fail for our legal system... what a sorry state we live in.
Sorry I got a bit confused here, when I read about 'merkins using UK law to get their way to prevent publication of something they could not do in merkin-land, I thought I must make a comment about Gary McKinnon, but the comparison between the two is so bizarre that I am lost for words
What's the difference between Tiger Woods and Santa Clause?
Santa stops after 3 Hos'
Paris, who is also a golf fanboi, I know 'cos I've seen her get a hole in one with a big wood.
@Accenture on Tiger
Funny really, because someone who fucks everyone they meet should be a perfect symbol for a management consultancy
Going with management consultants is morally worse than going with prostitutes anyway.
The injunction issued Thursday
What injunction? thought saying that was prohibited..
What a waste !!
I just spent £15 on a DVD for Xmas, 'Tigers Favourite 18 holes'.
Bloody turns out to be about golf !!!
Accenture and Tiger are alike?
is a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company?
is a marital obligations outsourcing entity?
El Reg breaching the injunction?
I believe that El Reg is in breach of the injunction, as it (allegedly) prevents the publication of photographs of any naked parts of his body, and I can quite clearly see his face, hands, and even his arms totally uncovered in those advertisements.
Ex Accenture Employee Angle
Well - ya know... I was employed at Accenture through the Tiger woods era.
One of the most posted pieces of Propaganda was a Poster that stated....
Go on - Be a Tiger.
Well, Accenture seems to have truly missed the boat here. They could have started a whole new campaign launch to truly tie Sir Woods and the company together.
The Slogan..... Go on - Be a Cheetah
