The Case

In proceedings brought under CPR Pt20 by which the claimant sought to establish that, under the terms of an agreement with the Pt20 defendant, he was entitled to a 10% share of the copyright in a song and all versions and adaptations thereof, the court ruled that, on the evidence, he had failed to make out his contentions and accordingly dismissed the claim.
