Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The editor of Newswatch -- which is now supplying yesterday's news today to shamed portal 2b after it was caught nabbing stories from Newsnow -- takes the whole idea of intellectual property very seriously. "I am very opposed to anyone ripping off another site's material," said John Cookson soberly. "As you know 2b have just started taking our material with our permission, but we will be a keeping a very close eye on things." Good job too. Cos he's got to keep the other eye on Big Ben as well after installing a Web camera -- after much persuasion -- in St Thomas' hospital pointing directly at the monolith clock. "It's a brilliant shot," he said excitedly, "and we had a message from one homesick ex-pat who says he sits and looks at it mesmerised every day!!" Rumour has it that his next Web cam will be focused on his front lawn -- so his homesick ex-pats can watch the green, green grass of home grow as well. ®
