Talk about sacrificing the world's trees for no good reason. The good people at Cream The Magazine, or rather at Linda Land Public Relations, saw fit to bombard Campaign with no fewer than six versions of the same press release last week.

It was left to a lonely, solitary fax to announce that the magazine, due to launch on 7 March, would now be changing its name to Ampersand to avoid confusion with said scouse dancefloor.

Makes you wonder if the publishers of D&AD's magazine of the same name have received any Linda Land press releases this week.
