How not to write legislation, [ (c) UK.gov, again]
120A / 4 reads:
(a) the Court grants an injunction under subsection (1) upon the application of an owner of copyright whose copyright is infringed by the content accessible at or via each specified online location in the injunction, and
(b) the owner of copyright before making the application made a written request to the service provider giving it a reasonable period of time to take measures to prevent its service being used to access the specified online location in the injunction, and no steps were taken,
the Court shall order the service provider to pay the copyright owner's costs of the application unless there were exceptional circumstances justifying the service provider's failure to prevent access despite notification by the copyright owner.
SO (a) means the court has to specify online locations - i.e. URLs - for content accessible "at or via". So Google and Bing are banned automatically the day the first injunction is granted then. Or can the copyright owner pick and choose the locations specified - and therefore discriminate against those it selects in favour of those it ignores?
(b) surely the "no steps were taken" phrase surely means I as service provider can take the step of saying "We are investigating this and when we discover the verdict of the case in which you have won a conviction for a specific case of copyright infringement at or via the location you have specified, and confirmed that in no way have you discriminated against that location whilst ignoring others, we will require the site operator to remove the specified URL. Please provide the precise and unique URL for the item of content to which your request refers."
Better still, the bit that says "specified online location in the injunction " is great - that means that until the injunction is granted, one cannot take steps. Until it's granted, it's merely an application for an injunction, not an injunction - but even ignoring the semantics, until the injunction is granted, how do I know whether the applicant has made any amendment to it after sending me their request? I'm not paying lawyers to keep up with them, they can send me appropriate paperwork - and if it becomes a snow job, then DDoS against them is perfectly fair game, cos they are doing it to me.
