It depends very much on whether News International, the British
subsidiary of News Corporation, was engaged in any activity that would
fall afoul of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act after 2003, when The
News Corporation Limited (South Australia) became News Corporation
(Delaware).  There is an ongoing FBI investigation into this question.
