Newspaper regulation and registration

Comment 24th July 2010

Repeal the Newspapers, Printers and Reading Rooms Repeal Act 1869 (and thus the Printer's Imprint Act 1961) and the Newspaper, Libel and Registration Act 1881

Why does this matter?

The two Act in question were intended to allow prosecutors to find and prosecute those responsible for criminal libel, but criminal libel has been abolished.  Had it not been, nevertheless these Acts are powerless in the face of the internet.
