The McLibel defendants (Helen Steel and Dave Morris) are still doing the occasional interview. Please get in touch with the McLibel Support Campaign if you would like to arrange to speak to them. McSpotlight volunteers are also available for words of wisdom about this website.

We can also put you in touch with witnesses from the trial or suggest suitable people to comment on different angles.

If you're just looking for some quotes, try the interview pages, the press releases or pinch them from other press articles already published.



In general, all of the photographs on McSpotlight are available for free to non-profit organisations. However, some of them are the of individuals or companies, and some of them we have pinched from other sources, so you may like to be careful. If you'd like to know the status of a specific picture, please get in touch.

Profit companies such as newspapers can also use the pictures but please get in touch about photographer's fees and copyright.

Higher-quality or print copies can usually be arranged.

Freelance photographer Nick Cobbing (tel: +44 (0) 181 888 5659) has been following the case from the beginning and has a portfolio of pictures available.

See images for all the photos available on the site.


Logos, cartoons etc

Most of the non-photograph images on McSpotlight are free for anybody to use. As with the photos, some of the cartoons may be of the artist so please get in touch if you're unsure.

For the McSpotlight logo, use the small one at the top of this page or this large colour version.

See images for all our cartoons, subverts and so on.
