Blogger gets first court order served via Twitter
LONDON - The High Court has granted an order allowing an injunction to be served via micro blogging site Twitter for the first time.
The order is to be served on behalf of a blogger called Donal Blaney who is pursuing an unknown Twitter user. Blaney claims the user is posing as him and is breaching his copyright and intellectual property
The user's name is Blaney'sBlarney, the same name as the blog Blaney uses to express his political opinions.
Requested by Kent-based solicitors Griffin Law, the injunction, dubbed "Blaney's Blarney Order", demands that the imposter stops posting as Blaney and immediately identifies his or herself.
Blaney, who is also principal of Griffin Law, told The Press Assocation: "This is an important step in dealing with online bullying. The scales of justice have been tilted in favour of innocent victims today."
