Copyright Success for Trinity Barrister

Trinity barrister, James Marwick, successfully appeared for the Claimants in the copyright infringement case of Hodgson & Anor v Isaac & Anor [2010] EWPCC 037 before HHJ Birss QC sitting at the RCJ.

A screen writer and his company had infringed copyright by copying a substantial part of an autobiography in a film script. While the majority of dramatic events in the book had not been copied, it was found that the details and incidents and their interpretation, which were reproduced, formed a key part of what made the book original and amounted to a substantial part.
