So it begins! Apparently police want to "ban" blogs that are breaching the no-publication court order regarding alleged arsonist Brendan Sokaluk:
Victoria Police want to ban messages being posted on internet blogs about accused firebug Brendan Sokaluk.If it's illegal then prosecutions may be in order. Imagine trying to ban individual blog posts. Like chasing the winds. Perhaps Senator Stephen Conroy's office might have some ideas on how we might deal with rogue bloggers. Add them to the ACMA list perhaps?
The publication of Sokaluk's street address and his image has been banned by a court but members of the public have been freely publishing those details on the internet.
