CENSORSHIP EFFECTS The Streisand Effect

This links into the government plans for a radical shift in TV censorship, but I wanted to note the Streisand Effect term - one I've encountered several times but could never recall!

Its mentioned in here, though its the linked BBC article that goes into detail.

A word of caution too on this otherwise useful notion: yes, there are clear examples of attempted censorship rebounding, but what about the super injunctions that made it illegal to mention a story or that there was a gagging order?
