I am lucky enough to hang around a bunch of lawyer folk most of my week so this story made me chuckle - the High Court in England has alowed a court order to be served via twitter! THIS IS A BIG DEAL!!!
The issue = Someone has set up a fake @blaneysblarney account on twitter impersonating Donal Blaney the right wing blogger/comentator. Ahhhhhh! Major intelectual property issue. AND what a way to serve the court order which requests the tweeter to reveal their identity and stop the impersonation!
The BBC reported that: " UK law states that an injunction does not have to be served in person and can be delivered by several different means including fax or e-mail." Ahhhhh sooo interesting.
Check out Donal Blaney's blog and thoughts in this post. What's in a name eh?!
