- one by the European Court of Human Rights (which belongs to the Council of Europe, is based in Strasbourg, and covers the whole European continent minus Belarus, Kosovo, Holy Sea)
- and one from the European Court of Justice (which belongs to the European Union, covers EU institutions and the 27 member states, and is based in Luxembourg)
"ECJ and ECHR have clearly moved to grant traditional press freedoms not only to traditional media, but also to SMS-information services (and, if implicitely, bloggers!) and NGOs engaged in 'the creation of forums for public debate'."If these rulings are confirmed in the future and if the courts of the member states apply the rulings properly, this could move forward the role of new media based journalism in the future.
I'd hope that this would be the case!
