Schillings Idiocy Goes Global

What did the law firm Schillings tell Ryan Giggs they would achieve for him? Did they tell him they would ensure his name would go around the world on Twitter as never before?*

Wasting their client’s money…

UPDATE: The floodgates have opened, mainstream US media is naming Giggs; Forbes Magazine and Conde Nast’s Ars Technica. US based Brit Nick Denton’s Gawker is mocking the injunction as well.

    Nope, He still does what he is paid to do(Play football), Public image is of a dedecated pro that has won loads of medals for the socailist boss (Fergie a Labour supporter, Has Meet Ed Miliband and a donor and tax avoider) , But does not take Taxpayers money ( tho the socailist idiots in Manchester dont relise) , And the club is finaiced thro capitisim.

    He’s still something of a role model on the pitch – anyone playing at his level at his age, and for one club throughout his career, is exemplary.

    Don’t give a toss what he gets up to when he’s not playing footie – but the arrogance of the judges who are making the law up as they go along annoys me.

    This is racist, it is all just because he is Welsh, if he was French, no one would bother, if he was Scottish it would take years to come out, if German… OK if there were no swastikas, American, then only if you were foreign or played golf….no it is because the Welsh are oppressed… lets be revolting then… Bach

    dont wanna piss of the host but i agree, He is paid to do a job , what he does with 2 consenting adults is his buisness.

    I’m not that concerned if a newspaper wants to publish a kiss and tell about anyone – if it’s so important to keep a squeaky clean image, then don’t go dipping your wick in someone elses tallow.

    One thing about Giggs is that he hasn’t sought to profit from that image – unlike the egregious John Terry who took money for articles praising him as a family man, then got upset when his extracurricular activities were publicised.

    So I have some sympathy for him, but that’s outweighed by my utter contempt for the judges who think they can impose a privacy law by misinterpreting the HRA.

    If you’re not based in the UK, you may have no idea what a “super-injunction” is. But if you’re a Brit, they’re apparently an occasional part of daily life—especially as of late. And now, an anonymous Twitter user is being sued for breaking a super-injunction issued by a British judge, but over who or what? Nobody knows for sure, and it’s because of the super-injunction.

    Talk of social media injunctions in the UK began earlier this month when a British judge attempted to protect the identity of a brain-damaged woman by ordering her name to stay off of Twitter and Facebook. The two sites were actually included in a list of “media” forbidden from publishing the information, according to the order seen by Reuters, despite the fact that both companies are US-based and the content they host is entirely user-generated.

    But that’s just a “regular” type of injunction—there’s also a concept called a super-injunction. While an injunction simply bars a specific aspect of the story from being discussed (in the previous example, a name), a super-injunction is “super” because it bars any element of the story from being discussed at all. So, if a celebrity has an affair with her poolboy’s dog and somehow manages to get a super-injunction from a judge, the mere discussion of any of it—the celebrity herself, the poolboy’s clothing that day, the breed of the dog, whether the celebrity had a relationship with the poolboy before moving onto the dog, etc.—is not allowed.

    In fact, celebrity cover-ups appear to be the primary reason for super-injunctions lately. Earlier this month, an anonymous Twitter user listed a number of actors, TV personalities, athletes, and other celebrities who allegedly obtained super-injunctions in order to keep details about their lives secret. According to the Financial Times, the High Court has handed out “at least 30″ of these super-injunctions to the rich and famous, though prime minister David Cameron is reportedly uneasy about the practice

    I think the Dark side of the farce ,is being a little scary , I tried to follow argument on NN and I cannot see what all the hubub is , so now they wanna put legal prosecution on someone who twitters/bloggs a name that may or may not be bound by a superinjunction ,citing they have no right to anonimty (as opposed to no right to say it) , “there will be people who could be going to pentonville” .

    I would have thought innocent until proven guilty is adequate legal address , any pre trial stuff can only be hearsay (as not proven in court) ergo reputations cannot be protected until a trial has occured . I mean what if you just typed a name by chance and ended up being prosecuted ,even though you didnt really know who it was .As pointed out legal team then have to reveal who injunction was for ,if they wish to prosecute whoever names them .

    I can see some instances of contempt of court as in criminal/jury cases , but given speed of the internet prosecuting everywhere the info goes , whilst slighlty possible would in reality mean big fish with money , besides as discovered with mod software it can be got round .

    eg Rainy Yesterday Again Never Go Into Google Games Stupidly.

    It is simple innocent until proven guilty , or courts become rather meaningless , respect legal process .

    It is very simple

    the elites GAVE is the net 50 years ago, give or take

    it was a calculated risk

    the risk was really a win win for them, as they can control the endgame

    so they beneffitted enormously drom the net, via wealth creation

    look at the banskter debacle last 2-3 years

    now

    a problem

    they want to reign it in

    china did it for the last 10 years

    now

    even china is playing with it

    ff to now

    things are getting TRICKY for the elites

    too much FOI is bad for them

    these super injunctions are just playtime

    the real meat is when YOU or I or that racist wanker pratagnostic get baged up or stating OUR views

    that is the way it is going

    The Paragnostic says:

    No – I have a problem bothering to try to comprehend an argument that is chunked into tiny pieces spread over many lines. I’ll try, anyway.

    The ‘elite’ didn’t give us the Internet – it came out of DARPA sponsored work to provide a tolerant network that would survive a widespread attack. The WWW came out of CERN – Tim Berners-Lee came up with the idea. Opening the internet up to non military or educational uses was good for the expansion of the web, not some gift of the elites (whoever you think they may be). They (if there is a ‘they’) cannot control the endgame without harmonising the legal systems between nations, which is never going to happen so long as nation-states exist.

    As to the banker debacle – that is down to stupid bankers who failed to assess risks properly, and stupider politicians who thought that deregulating a poorly understood system was a good idea.

    China, being a totalitarian state, will of course try to control what information their citizens can access – that is only to be expected. If you want some stuff to worry about, then look at Australia – a supposedly democratic and open society that is proposing internet censorship, or France, where selling various historical items is illegal and EBay has had to withdraw some auctions.

    Injunctions, and indeed any sanction, can only be effective if the law is applicable across borders.

    I fully expect the idiot politicians to attempt to control the internet, but the nature of the beast is such that ways around any control short of disconnection from the outside world will always be found.

    I’m fully in favour of free speech, and will continue to practise it until I am incarcerated.

    Does that answer your points?

    Well yes DLDD , Freedom of speech ,that is what is at stake .

    If we cannot have that , we cannot critcise those in power without fear , that was what was so astonishing about tonights pentonville remark , a lawyer dishing out sentence before any trial . He was perhaps threatening a leak , but as you outline same attitude only has to reach gov minister level and its police state .

    Have tried to track OldHolborns sudden exit , seems as though someone disagreed with somthing he said on israel (fellow libertarian) and posted his name address and pics of kids and missus , he then had a load of death threats and decided to put his family first . i am just puzzled how a fellow libertarian thought cyber terrorism is how you win argument . Will miss OH , I didnt agree with some of his stuff , but he did some excellent trashing of Labour spin and made some good comments on finance and not letting your elected people become your masters during the night . I would have been interested to know how post new BBC program he thought , 9pm this monday , if its as good as last series will be unmissable .

    The software (and some pretty good hardware implementations) has been around for over a decade. I was involved in planning a Phorm-like system back in 2000, and only a concern for ethics stopped it being tried out.

    Implementing a shutdown of Twitter access from the whole of the UK would take a significant amount of work, and new kit at the network hubs, not to mention a serious amount of court time.

    A (virtually) total net shutdown could be done much more quickly, but only by physically turning off lots of equipment, and satellite links would be unaffected. This would only be likely under martial law.

    You overestimate the power of politicians and judges, and seem to think that shouting loudly will make others listen to your fantasies.

Therefore, Ryan Giggs had an affair with Imogen Thomas.

    Can anyone see anything wrong with this logic? If not, can someone get in touch with poor Ryan and tell him to change law firms – the one he is currently using has just spilled the beans on his affair.

    It has nothing to with what team you support, but clearly you’re too thick to grasp that.

    The British people are constantly/consistently let down by the judiciary. They seem to believe that they actually matter in the ‘cyber devolved world’ that exists outside of the these islands. The world actually laughs at them because to use a word that Mark (my new hero) used ‘Canutism’ in this day and age is rather pathetic and lacks a worldly awareness. If the British people wanted to they could adopt the new ‘Spanish Practice’ ignore a stupid law that becomes unenforcable when too many people break it !!!

    Using the law to stop the original gossip from getting out is bad enough and a complete abuse of what injunctions are supposed to be for, but using the law to criminalise people who are simply repeating gossip that they’ve seen, say, in a spanish newspaper, or have seen across 100million web pages, is even worse.
    It can’t stand.
    I hope that twitter will fight the request for information. The request basically says:
    “we order you to tell us who made this tweet…”
    The correct response from twitter should be:
    “oh, you mean the gossip which was already available for anyone on the planet to see on 100’s of millions of webpages and in every non-uk newspaper? yeah, right, you can fuck off you twats because we have no intention of living in an Orwellian nightmare where the rich can put ordinary people in jail for gossiping, especially if that gossip is the truth.”

    They’re trying to equate gossip with paedos at the moment; saying that anyone who gossips about the injunctions should be treated in the same way as a paedo.

    It’s absolutely obscene, and I hope Cameron steps in and stops the whole thing.

    It’s a total abuse of the law and of basic human rights.

    1) No injunction:
    Newspapers run a story in the uk press for a few days, about 1million people read/hear about it, about 100,000 people remember it 5 minutes after reading about it, about 1,000 people gossip about it for a few days, within a week nobody remembers it even happened because there are more important things in life and you simply forget this kind of stuff after a few days in that instance.

    2) Get an injunction:
    Arouse everybody’s intense curiosity, everyone in their “industry” becomes a target for gossip (“is it him…or maybe him…”) by everyone on the planet, their name gets put in the frame on millions of websites and newspapers across the world, almost everyone on the planet knows what they allegedly did, and most of those people will remember it for a very very long time because the original curiosity “tease” and the subsequent “discovery” burns it into memory forever and because people knew that purely by gossiping about something they read in a newspaper, that person could have put you in jail. Their name then becomes ruined because they’ve effectively threatened ordinary people with prison for gossiping about something they (allegedly) did once.

    How fucking stupid and arrogant are these people?

    Hundreds of thousands of web sites have exposed his name
    Countless numbers of Tweeters and bloggers have exposed him
    Non-UK media are naming him
    The Today programme virtually outs him
    His identity is well and truly in the public domain
    He’s served a court order on Twittter which force him to reveal his identity in California and…

  245. 245
    Lydia Dustbin says:

    So, under the protection of an injunction, a judge and, presumably other persons, could make allegations about a third party which are unproven and, potentially libellous. The third party has no recourse to law in order to challenge the allegations because the injunction prevents them from doing so.

    Is this correct? If so, what a scandal.

    I couldn’t give a toss about the goings on of overpaid celebs, unless they come on preaching about how whiter than fucking white they are. I do agree with the sentiments expressed that threats issued to tweeters et al are out of all proportion to the original actions they’re looking to obscure. Indeed, any rational, disinterested observer would conclude “fuck ‘em. let’s have it all” in response. There IS a case for privacy but the lengths gone to by CBT or whatever his alias is… are ludicrous, self-defeating and contrary to the norms in a free society. What a tosser he must be, whoever he is. I’ve no doubt that his name will reliably leak then we can all freely see what a berk he looks.

    If Schillings think that they have good enough relations for the Obama Administration to try and overturn the American Constitution then they really are deluded…..especially since “Twitter” is based in the USA…the US Supreme Court is not going to take any notice of what the High Court in the UK say about privacy..or the Human rights Act…it’s total lunacy even for them to think they have any chance of getting this to stand…it’ll take a US judge about 30 seconds to throw out the application ..it’s an attempt to attack the fundamentals of Free Speech enshrined in the US Constitution

    Does it really matter about which celeb is shagging around? Of course not. But now, with all these idiotic injunctions and who is hiding behind them and why, this is now a battlefield. Of course as in this case, someone gets hit by friendly fire from his bewigged advisers and his name is out there. Globally readable in the free press and on the unfettered web.

    Candyman says:

    Here’s an issue:

    If there is a truth out there and it becomes subject to a super-injunction, then how is any media outlet that happens to find out about that truth supposed to know that it is subject to the super-injunction? Isn’t the point of the super-injunction that neither the truth nor the existence of the super-injunction are known about?

    Isn’t it likely at some future time that some media outlet will publish a story about some true event that is subject to a super-injunction, but the media outlet won’t know about the super-injunction?

    Or am I missing the point about these super-injunctions? Are the major media outlets told by some party that they can’t talk about certain stories, even if the party doesn’t mention that there is a super-injunction? Or does that party actually tell he major media outlets that there is a super-injunction, but that it can’t be made public?

    May I recommend a gadget called the ‘Bullet’ – I believe a certain chain of ladies naughties and other finery sells them? I am hoping that the buzzing will rattle that one brain cell you appear to be sporting. And with a little luck it will also relieve some of that rage and aggravation you are spouting, and give the rest of us multi-celled specimens the chance to get some real discussion going.

    And FYI, I happen to think that many of the one-liners on here are PURE BLOODY GENIUS! Deal with it.

    Life hasn’t been all bad.

    Recently the courts awarded you £15 compensation.

    Now if you had come to us we would have –

    1. Told you that prosecuting a man who had no money was equivalent to contempt of court (hence the £15 award).

    2. Told you to fuck off as you were too poor for good old British justice.

    3. Get a shave.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
