Midweek media law mop up: Julian Assange (TM); internet contempt; and libel tourism

Champing at the bit to round up this week’s British media law news, because there’s been so much of interest. Since I missed last week’s missive, I’ve added a few older ones too.

First up, libel. A number of cases and articles to flag up:

Court access

Contempt

Julian Assange

In other Wikileaks news, and on a far more grave note, it’s alarming to learn that Bradley Manning has been charged with aiding the enemy, which his lawyer says carries with it the risk of the death penalty.

Phone hacking

FoI

Misc

Tips & tools

Events

Meeja Law is pleased to be supporting IBC’s upcoming Privacy & Defamation Conference on 15 March 2011:

From super-injunctions to secret recordings; from cost shifting to Clift; and from online infringements to official secrets: join some of the country’s top media lawyers to discuss the year’s most challenging topics at IBC Legal’s 18th annual Defamation & Privacy conference.
