    Recently I've been writing a piece of coursework on misuse of privacy, which is closely related to the recent injunction taken out against a recent celebrity over a threesome. I was going to use said celebrity to illustrate how useless these injunctions, especially when the story is available in Scottish Newspapers.

    Do you think it is appropriate to name him?

    What would be the point of naming him? would you be rbeaching the injunction?

    Why do you need to name the person in question to prove the futility of the injunction — saying what you have said is enough, namely that the information has been published widely in other jurisdictions and has been widely accessed on the internet. That will be enough to make the point, which was also made in the Supreme Court judgment.

    There is no reason to breach an injunction in your coursework. You shouldn't actively seek to do so.
