Don't get sued by the Lees in Singapore

A great piece on the libel case Murdoch has inherited in Singapore courtesy of Dow Jones.

The International Herald Tribune shamefully rolled over the last time it was sued by the Lees.

The problem wasn't the libel case (that's what libel insurance is for) but the threat of no business from Singapore Airlines and no copies of the IHT on that airline or in Singaporean hotels.

Libel bills are one thing you can fix, declining circulation and dropping ad revenue from one of Asia's biggest advertisers, well, that's another.

Over to you Rupert.
