HP has paid off some of the journalists it was accused of spying on in 2006.

One reporter from the New York Times and three from BusinessWeek have accepted an undisclosed payment some of which will go to charity.

HP engaged private investigators who used various methods to get hold of telephone call records as part of an attempt to find out which HP board member was talking to the press. The scandal ended up costing HP's chairwoman Patricia Dunn her job.

The company is still facing lawsuits from other reporters, and their parents, who were spied on by private investigators hired by the printer giant.

HP paid $14.5m to Californian authorities to end an investigation into the spying scandal. ®
