‘Farter-F*ck’: Carter-Ruck gains crude copycat website after IT firm fallout
Sites creators claim they were “wrongfully persecuted” by media law giant
An aggrieved IT firm has created a rather childish clone of Carter-Ruck’s website called ‘Farter-Fuck’.
According to the webpage, ‘Farter-fuck.co.uk’ is the brainchild of a company called ‘Hutton IT’, which claim it was “wrongfully persecuted” by the media firm’s lawyers.
Helpfully the site — which is still live — redirects presumably baffled Carter-Ruck clients to the firm’s genuine website after a few seconds.
First spotted by legal blog Roll on Friday, the site’s sweary URL appears to be based on a joke once made by current affairs magazine Private Eye.
Having apparently received a complaint from the London-based libel specialist, the publication — all too familiar with legal threats — cheekily responded, referring to the firm as “Farter-Fuck”.
