What's a little slander, privacy invasion, abetting and maybe a little treason if not the cost of doing business?  
Rupert Murdoch's News International is thought to have prepared a legal fund of £100m to settle civil litigation actions brought by victims of the News of the World phone-hacking scandal ahead of a High Court showdown in the new year.
And get them settled before trial which can often be a tad messy:
High Court trials hold the potential to reveal more details of wrongdoing by NOTW and deliver further damaging publicity about the invasiveness of hacking and the distress of victims.
Oh those British doling out punishment for wrongdoing by large companies. So unbecoming of a capitalist country. [cross-posted at Firedoglake]

Oh, hell, this is just paying off the victims--the shareholders will have to pick up that tab as the cost of doing business.

Rupert & Son will not have to endure the jail time they so richly deserve.
