See below - What now folks?

In reality, we don't have any IPR in the raw data so we have no 'rights' to it, and any
action on our part would be as against the Met Office for breaching the terms of the
agreement under which we provided the data to them.

I should have added to my prior email that part of the response to data requests would be
that it would be 'manifestly unreasonable' to disaggregate the data to parse out the data
that is NOT covered by the agreements noted....

Cheers, Dave

See this link below. This message sent by someone at the Hadley Centre.
I guess we don't rise to the bait. Can we say taunting is vexatious?


This suggests to me that as there is no way that Dan would be aware its not him. Could
it be that Mr. M sniffed the FTP site and ahs led everyone a merry dance. Can you log
when that file was accessed? One for Mike and IT support at your end?
