Reminds me of this:The Irish legal system is a nightmare. Years ago there was a case where the courts determined a convicted rapist couldn't be denied a Taxi licence because it would impede his right to earn a living.
The libel laws are the worst in the western world, for years the Prime Minister owned a private Island of the coast, he had no other declared income other than his salary, and the press never wrote a thing.
They're also far less strict than the UK courts when it comes to preventing exceptional individuals from taking lawsuits. If someone helped him with the case he would get a judgement in his favor. A court order instructing ISP's to block the farms in Ireland wouldn't be a surprise.
