Blogging in danger

March 19, 2013

The cobbled-together plans for British press regulation stray far beyond Leveson’s recommendations, to include blogs and other websites.
As Index on Censorship says:

“Bloggers could find themselves subject to exemplary damages in court, due to the fact that they were not part of a regulator that was not intended for them in the first place. This mess of legislation has been thrown together with alarming haste: there’s little doubt we’ll repent for a while to come.”
