@jmdhaas: Gladly. The slide linked in the text above contains 5 more tips; tip #10, on media framing, is derived from this particularly interesting article on the effect of penalty press releases (paywalled):

Van Erp, Judith. 2013. Messy business: Media representations of administrative sanctions for corporate offenders. Law & Policy 35 (1-2): 109-39.

Given that the compliance impact of a penalty press release is mostly dependent on how the media frame it, I think this piece of research is valuable to keep in mind for all regulators and other agencies with enforcement powers.
