A big row has errupted in Britain as people who wish to protect their private lives from invasion from the media have taken out court injunctions, and individuals have broken those injunctions by naming names on Twitter and Facebook.
Globalism produces one nasty side effect that the legal strengths of a nation like Britain can be destroyed by people on the internet. Most of the big internet companies are American and run under American law, which means:
1. defamation actions are harder to pursue.
2. hate and invasion of privacy can be done under freedom of speech.
British citizens are unable to protect our own privacy under British laws because of the internet and American laws.
Of course being a carrier the Twitter and Facebook claims they are not liable for what is posted on their networks, however as shown by Wikileaks they can be made to enforce their own terms and conditions, but this can be horribly expensive when hundreds and thousands of people are delibrately abusing British law. The alternative is to have Facebook and Twitter banned totally and a full firewall imposed on Britain like they have in China and in Australia.
