The Entertainment and Media Law Reports are essential to all those having to research, advise or litigate in these fields.

Forthcoming reports / analyses will include:
  • Lachaux v Independent Print Ltd [2017] EWCA Civ 1327 & 1334 (the first of these judgments is now the leading authority on ‘serious harm’ under s.1, Defamation Act 2013; the second concerns one party’s ability to deploy an opposing party’s legally privileged documents in the litigation & whether the position is any different in cases engaging art.10 ECHR)
  • Brevan Howard Asset Management LLP v Reuters Ltd [2017] EWCA Civ 950 (restatement by the CA of the correct approach for the court to take towards to the balancing exercise when someone is seeking an interim injunction to restrain a breach of confidence - as opposed to an infringement of privacy - and the defendant says he intends to rely on a public interest defence)
  • Khuja (formerly PNM) v Times Newspapers Ltd [2017] UKSC 49 (the SC’s decision to dismiss an appeal from the court’s refusal to grant an injunction to prevent on art.8 ECHR grounds the publication of information revealed in open court to the effect that the claimant was suspected of involvement in serious crime)
  • Mionis v Democratic Press SA [2017] EWCA Civ 1194 (an interesting judgment on the principles governing the grant or refusal of an interim injunction where the basis of the application is a contract settling earlier libel proceedings)
  • BNM v MGN Ltd, CA (due to be heard in Oct 2017) (a decision on the applicability of the post-April 2013 costs ‘proportionality’ requirements of the CPR to additional liabilities - i.e. success fees & ATE premiums - recoverable under conditional fee agreements entered into in media cases prior to that date)
  • Stocker v Stocker, CA (due to be heard in Jan 2018) (re responsibility for publication on social media
  • NT1 v Google Inc (due to be heard in Feb 2018) (trial of a data protection claim concerning the ‘right to be forgotten’)
  • Economou v De Freitas, CA (due to be heard in April 2018) (first CA case on the new defence of publication on a matter of public interest under s.4, Defamation Act 2013)
  • Sir Cliff Richard v BBC (the trial of this high-profile privacy & data protection claim is due to be heard in April 2018)
