Demon Internet has persuaded the courts to change the injunction protecting the new identities of James Bulger's killers, Jon Venables and Robert Thompson.
The Thus-owned internet service provider (ISP) successfully argued that change was necessary to prevent ISPs from being held responsible for injunction-breaking material that appears on their web pages.
Dame Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, president of the Family Division at the High Court, agreed that the form of the order was inappropriate and approved alterations agreed by Demon Internet and solicitors representing Venables and Thompson.
Essentially, the changes, which take immediate effect, now say that ISPs will not be in breach of the injunction if they "take all reasonable steps" to prevent publication of material that it covers.
Thus said in a statement: "What we are seeking to do is establish the breadth and scope of this injunction, and its implications to ISPs.
"We fully appreciate the seriousness of the issues dealt with in the injunction, and fully support the law in this matter. We have applied to the High Court to provide clarity that will enable ISPs to interpret the injunction.
"The injunction as it stands covers all content on our servers which is generated on the internet worldwide. What we have asked the court to do is define the parameters of our responsibility.
"We are concerned that we could be in the position where technically we are in contempt of court because of material published of which we have no knowledge."
Demon has long felt that the law has not kept pace with the development of the internet ever since losing a libel case for defamation over postings to newsgroups on its servers.
The company said at the time that it was "contrary to common sense to make ISPs responsible for the millions of items carried on the internet".
