In this news article by Clare Dyer (BMJ 2007;335:119, 21 Jul, doi: 10.1136/bmj.39280.488032.4E), we inadvertently raised by a factor of 10 the amount that Tonmoy Sharma had been ordered to pay in libel damages to MedicoLegal Investigations. The correct amount was in fact £30 000 (€45 000; $62 000) [not £300 000]. This error occurred during the editing process, affecting both the title and the text.
