Copyright - Infringement - Defence - Claimant publishing training manual - Claimant bringing proceedings against defendants, alleging first defendant infringing certain copyright works by reason of creation of its own manual - Whether alleged copyright works being infringed - Whether second defendant jointly liable.
Copyright Infringement. The claimant brought proceedings alleging copying of its training manual used by those who taught techniques for physical restraint. It alleged that the first defendant had infringed certain copyright works by reason of the creation of its own manual. The alleged copyright works included photographs, literary and dramatic works. The Intellectual Property Enterprise Court held, inter alia, that, on the evidence, the first defendant had not at any stage been granted a licence to copy any of the photographs and, whenever it had done so, it had infringed the claimant's copyright. However, the claimant's case regarding literary and dramatic works failed.
