In 1985, Top UK Government Law Official Knowingly Shared Pirated Document With Prime Minister’s Office; Asked For ‘Discretion’

May I point out that what you are getting is a “contraband copy”, made in this Department, of another “contraband copy” made by the DPP [Director of Public Prosecutions, the official responsible for prosecuting criminal offenses] from a copy which he legitimately obtained from the shorthand writers on the usual commercial basis. The making of extra copies in this way is, I think, a breach of the shorthand writers’ copyright and I think that they would be aggrieved if they knew about it. I should therefore be grateful if you would use the enclosures with discretion.
