|When the internet arrived it seemed like a vast, new unregulated frontier, where people could blog and post with impunity. |
And as social networking took off, it felt as though conversations once had down the pub, could be had in writing, online because somehow, it wasn't the same as publication in print.

Publication, is publication, is publication.
You blog, post and tweet on criminal cases bound by all of the laws the mainstream media has always known about and had to observe.
