- Presstek Europe Ltd v Multi-Digital De Impression SL  EWHC 685 685. A case concerning the governing law and jurisdiction clause of a distribution agreement having a ‘lacuna’ in respect of injunctions, but on interpretation the court held the clause did not amount to an agreement for the English courts to have jurisdiction under Art 23(1).
- Abernethy v Hotbed Ltd  BPIR 1547. There was no material difference between the two tests of ‘real prospect of success’ and ‘genuine triable issue’ under r. 6.5(4)(b) Insolvency Rules 1986 when applying to set aside a statutory demand.
- Village Investigations Ltd v Gardner & Metcalfe  EWHC 3300. A company was only entitled to nominal damages where a copy of its database had been made in breach of a confidentiality clause as the information was publically available and no loss could be shown as no use had been made of it.
- Apps v Weldtite Products & Wharmby Associates Ltd  FSR 39. An action for design right and copyright infringement and misuse of confidential information relating to the design of stabilisers for children’s bicycles. Commissioner of design is the first owner and design subsists in whole as well as component parts.
