Media law mop up: Counting super injunctions; Twitter battles; and libel in the schoolyard

So, just how many super injunctions and anonymous privacy injunctions are there? Even the Master of the Rolls doesn’t know, but various newspapers have had a stab at guessing.  I’ve produced a table for the Inforrm blog which gives dates, issues, judges and links for privacy injunctions 2010-11. More background info about that here.

Here’s a link-laden round up of this week’s news:

Super / privacy injunctions

Privacy issues

Twitter disclosure

Libel

Contempt of court

Court reporting

Data protection

Copyright
