The Inforrm blog will be taking a short winter break again this year to allow our editorial team to relax. We will have a few “seasonal” posts over the next fortnight – in particular Jude Townend’s “Media Law Review of the Year” and the eagerly awaited and hotly contested “Inforrm 2012 Quiz” – but normal service will not be resumed until the second week in January 2013.
This has been another remarkable year for media law – dominated by the Leveson Inquiry and Report but with several high profile libel trials. Inforrm has had 600,000 page views this year – and has again, broken a number of “media law exclusives” – largely as a result of the encyclopedic legal knowledge of Benjamin Pell.
Many thanks to all our readers for following the blog and for the many positive comments we have had (and the constructive negative ones). Thanks also to everyone who has written for the blog in the past year – in particular to Jude Townend (who has taken on the serious burden of producing the weekly round up) and Brian Cathcart (whose incisive Leveson related posts have been widely read).
As we have said many times before, Inforrm is intended to be a forum for debate and we welcome contributions from all points of view about issues concerning “media and law”. We can be contacted via the email address on the home page.
