But the said Order made the buzz on Twitter even more virulent as more than 75,000 Tweeps discussed the footballer with abject abandon in a clear show that the law in Britain needs to be looked at afresh when it comes to Freedom of Speech and emerging technologies. For example it would be impracticable to arrest , prosecute and imprison the over 75,000 Twitter users who openly named the player. Infact the openess of Twitter made it possible or rather emboldened mainstream Media to cover the story without fear of incurring further Legal Liability for publishing the same (See BBC news item on Ryan Giggs).
The story is of interest to most internet users and is a demonstration of perhaps the changes that Laws in different Jurisdictions should envisage as the World becomes more technologically interwoven.Whereas the Injunction my be binding in UK, one could verily discuss the issue outside that Jurisdiction.
Now for the humorous ,this Tweet by @GoalGodNando has just a funny limb to it:
Ryan Giggs has probably scored more times off the pitch than I have on it for Chelsea...... viva la torres
or this Tweet
Imogen Thomas' sex tape leaked on Internet. Not downloading though, it's about 11 giggs.
Regulating online content will perhaps be the enigma of current lawmakers and Jurist in the World right now irrespective of the Country.
