Note that the review into injunctions published today says that
parliamentary privilege may not be enough to protect the media (let
alone "non-media" like mere websites). I foresee this coming to a head
in the next few weeks or months, but hopefully without WMF or WMUK
being sued - as Fred says, we'd rather not waste our money (even when
US law is clear) on defending against such actions.
