Heat Street’s Thursday write-up on the BBC policy included a statement from a BBC spokesman. “As the policy has stated for some time, where we believe that someone has posted something that may breach the law, we reserve the right to inform the relevant authorities – it’s the responsible thing to do, just like most other organisations’ policies allow them to share information.” A BBC employee also gave this explanation in a Thursday Twitter post.
