Court Order Served Over TWITTER: Blaney's Blarney Impersonator In Breach Of Copyright

Here is a first: the High Court in England has given their official stamp of approval for a court order to be served... over Twitter. The order will be tweeted to the anonymous writer behind Blaney's Blarney Twitter feed -- a feed that violates copyright law by using the name of a right-wing political blogger.

The BBC reports:

The blogger, who is also a lawyer and owns the firm serving the order, said that he thought that it was the first time Twitter had been used to deliver a court order.

The injunction - known as the Blaney's Blarney Order - is due to be served at 1930 BST and will include a link to the text of the full court order.
