Seditious libels

Good god:

Under another proposal likely to attract criticism from civil rights campaigners, the Government also announced stringent new rules to target extremist bookshops and curtail the dissemination of "terrorist publications".

According to the new law, a terrorist publication is any article that includes "a direct or indirect encouragement or other inducement to the commission" of terrorist acts or information that would help someone to commit an atrocity.

"Direct or indirect". What the hell is that supposed to cover?
