Channel 9 news first with this story!

This story didn't seem to get a big run on the Yahoo 7 news site oddly enough ;-)

The ACCC website article on the decision is here.

High Court held 4:1 that as the broadcaster had entered an arrangement with the third party and endorsed or adopted the misleading representations of that third party in its publication, the publisher was liable for misrepresentations in the content and was not able to rely on the publisher’s defence (Trade Practices Act Section 65A) in relation to stories that were broadcast on the Today Tonight show.

The full High Court decision is here.
