A legal take on Twittering in court

The Law Times has an interesting take, very supportive, on the recent Ottawa decision to allow blogging and twittering during a trial in Ottawa (as well as a link to the site that will allow you to follow the reporters’ comments.) Apparently the privilege is not just for journalists; any observer can join in, though the usual laws around libel etc. will apply to all bloggers.
