rant of the day: some

rant of the day: some people have suggested that they may publish the details of the killers of Jamie Bulger (for whom an injunction was passed yesterday to protect their identities) on an international website, outside of the jurisdiction of the British courts. regardless of your opinions regarding the judgment made in court yesterday, I think that it does no good to the campaign to maintain freedom of speech on the internet if the spirit (if not the letter) of the law is flouted so obviously. whilst the courts may have no power over international websites at the moment, if such behaviour continues, you can bet that governments will begin to press for those powers – and then where will freedom of speech be?
