Abstract

Judgments, especially those of the highest courts, are really important documents for a transparent and democratic organization of the "res public" and should be as accessible as possible to the community. The same goes for the other measures by which public authorities decide on specific cases applying laws and regulations. Nowadays the web offers endless possibilities for sharing all this essential piece of public information, but also strong barriers related to the management of privacy and copyright come into play. Can the publication in a wiki be a solution?
