Media law mop up: Comment moderation; Operation Weeting; and Goodwin injunction

Phone hacking is back in today’s headlines, while Fred Goodwin’s injunction is the top privacy story. Meanwhile, me, myself and Meeja Law have been writing about other things: a flawed ComRes poll on super injunctions on the CLJJ blog, publicity issues in the Court of Protection for the Inforrm blog, a privacy law event at Gray’s Inn, and a comment moderation dispute in the Isle of Wight.  The latter story has subsequently been picked up by the BBC College of Journalism and Jon Slattery’s blog. Here’s the usual round up:

Phone hacking

Privacy injunctions

Wider privacy issues

Court of Protection

Contempt of court

Freedom of expression

Freedom of information & reporting access

Press standards


Data protection

Open justice
