Blaney’s Blarney Order

with one comment

Twitter injunction, has it set a useful precedent?

Conservative libertarian blogger and legal eagle Donal Blaney has successfully executed a High Court injunction via Twitter, now known as Blaney’s Blarney Order, requiring an anonymous blogger to reveal himself and to stop impersonating Blaney on the internet. Donal is now negotiating a settlement that will involve a donation to charity.

I’m just wondering if there are a few people here in South Tyneside who having suffered miserably from the contributions of an anonymous blogger(s) in a number of guises (including a recent fresh manifestation) might like to get in touch with Donal to ascertain if this type of injunction can be applied through the posting of a comment on a blog, or through other internet avenues?

You never know, it may elicit a positive response.

  1. I think that Twitter is a weak infrastructure for “serving” things, most noteably as the DM channel is infested with spam, and many just ignore it.

    It is circumventable by not following anyone (no DMs unless there is a follow-follow relationship).

    This may be a one off.
