The late EMAP

It was EMAP which really got the copyright campaign going back in '95 with its notorious 'all rights, throughout the universe, in media yet to be invented' letter to freelances.

Sold business titles to Guardian Media and private equity group Apax in Jan 2008 and the rest - as far as we can tell - to Bauer.
