UK orders WSJ to censor names from website, to no avail of course

http://j.mp/16UKOZM  (Business Insider)

    That's when British prosecutors stepped in, obtaining a court order
    "prohibiting the newspaper from publishing names of individuals not
    yet made public in the government's ongoing investigation," the
    Journal's Cassell Bryan-Low reported. From the paper's explanation:

    The Journal received word of the order from the SFO by email at 7:18
    p.m. London time. The news organization already had published on Dow
    Jones Newswires and the Journal's website, WSJ.com, an article by Mr.
    Enrich and reporter Jenny Strasburg that divulged names of traders and
    brokers that British prosecutors expect to publicly name next week.
    The article was taken down from the website but appears in Friday's
    print editions of the Journal circulated in the U.S. and in Asia.

Hey, if you're in the UK, don't read this paragraph. Your government
still hasn't figured out the Internet. Her Majesty orders you not to
read these names! // "Among those who could be named are several of
Hayes' former coworkers at both Citigroup Inc (NYSE:C) and UBS AG
(NYSE:UBS). Michael Pieri, who was Hayes' boss while he worked at UBS,
was fired by the bank and moved to Australia. Hayes' former assistant
at UBS, Mirhat Alykulov, could also be on the list. Sources said he
has been cooperating with investigators from the U.S. Another name
which could be on the SFO's list is Christopher Cecere, who was Hayes'
boss while he worked in Citigroup's Tokyo operations. Cecere resigned
from his position at Citigroup around the same time Hayes was fired.
Other people who could be on the list are ex HSBC Holdings plc
(NYSE:HBC) (LON:HSBA) trader Luke Madden, former JPMorgan Chase & Co.
(NYSE:JPM) employee Paul Glands, and former Rabobank employee Paul
Robson." - via "ValueWalk"
