Trouble with Trolls

By Associate Solicitor at 00:00

We hear more and more these days about individuals being arrested and charged under the Malicious Communications Act 1988 and Communications Act 2003. Although these Acts have been around for some time it is only with the increase use and exposure of social media platforms, such as Twitter and Facebook, that we are seeing this offence come to the fore. However, public awareness of the offence is still somewhat lacking. Often, individuals don’t realise that they are committing a serious offence and we are seeing a growing number of arrests.
