Superinjunctions may have stopped the press from delving into the private lives of those who can afford them, but muzzling the internet is proving more difficult after four of the hitherto anonymous celebrities were allegedly exposed on Wikipedia.
According to the Daily Mail, the people – one footballer, one actor and two “TV stars” – concerned had their eponymous Wikipedia pages updated to include details about the gagging orders.
Wikipedia can be edited by anyone and even though moderators battled to delete the information, it kept reappearing. The online encyclopedia said it may lock the relevant pages to prevent the details being published again.
The superinjunctions cannot deem the website liable for the leaks because its servers are located in America.
