 AMP v PERSONS UNKNOWN (2011)
An individual was granted an anonymity order under CPR r.39.2(4) and an interim injunction to prevent transmission, storage and indexing of photographic images taken from her mobile phone and uploaded to a website as BitTorrent files. She had a reasonable expectation of privacy in relation to those images capable of protection under the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 art.8, and an injunction was appropriate to restrain conduct in breach of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.
