Maxine Carr gagging order “covers Internet”

Posted by malcolm on Saturday, May 15th, 2004 at 0:01

Various press reports covering the court injunction against revealing Maxine Carr’s new identity, or various other specified details about her life, are saying that Internet Service Providers are covered by the injunction. The Metro, a London freesheet, today went so far as to claim that ISPs have to “take reasonable steps” to ensure that their users cannot access the banned information through the Internet. The accuracy of this report is not clear; if it is accurate, how this duty can be reconciled with the Electronic Commerce Regulations is a question that might be best addressed by a specialist lawyer.
