Gomery, Publication Bans and Spycatcher.

I see various sources that Gomery has lifted the publication ban, I assume on the basis that the news is already out there so the ban makes no sense. That would mean that Iain Murray was correct in his theory that the Spycatcher case would be the model for how things would play out.

This Reuters report gives a little background to how Canadian publication bans have been regularly flouted by US media, and it would appear that at least some people are beginning to think about the very basis of the whole problem. With a seamless internet, just how do we manage and deal with the patchwork of national laws that cover publication?
