My court reporting by Tweet last night has received some international attention from the journalism.co.uk site.
It is not the first occassion that the Federal Court has been reported in this way. As reported on this blog and in the Crikey email, Andrew Colley of The Australian and Liam Tung of ZDNet did the same thing last October during the landmark copyright hearing brought by the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT) against Australia’s third largest internet service provider, iiNet. In that case the judge was well aware of what was going on, and stated he had no problems with it.
I’ll be writing a wrap on this extraordinary case for the Crikey email later today.
