Its a U.K. settlement and apparently does not affect the book in the U.S.
U.K. is also are known for plantiff friendly libel laws, so in some respects I think Random House chose which country was more important to market the book to. They can't in the U.K. but they can in the U.S....with many, many more people.
Frankly, the whole ordeal seem fishy to me. How nobody gave credence to those bottles being fake before they went the auction amazes me. Kids in a candy store. MB isn't solely to blame though...obviously.
