Are privacy injunctions still relevant?

For anyone not in the UK, there's been a story released into the press about a famous married man with kids who's been involved in an extra-marital threesome. Because of the privacy injunction placed on the press by the courts, the name or details of the story can't be released to the public. But... the injunction doesn't apply to anyone not in the UK so the story can be released on any non-UK hosted website, making the injunction kind of pointless. 

A lot of people have criticised privacy injunctions for not being relevant anymore, so that's what my article is about!

Let me know what you think!
