Adaptive Spectrum & Signal Alignment Inc v British Telecommunications Plc, CA (Patten, Floyd LJJ, Sir Stanley Burnton), 11/11/14 and 21/11//14

In an appeal concerning two patents relating to the management of ADSL line technology, a finding of infringement in relation to the first patent was upheld and in relation to the second patent a finding of infringement was substituted. B’s application for a 14 day stay of the consequent injunction was granted, on terms giving the patentee 10% of B’s weekly revenue from its relevant broadband products, as an interim payment on account of damages. B’s large market share meant that a substantial part of the public would suffer a reduction in service if the stay were refused. The patentee’s business lay in licensing its inventions, and so it would suffer no lasting harm from the stay, which would give B time to alter its systems.

Mandalia & Anr. v Beaufort Dedicated No.2 Limited 28/11/14 (QB)

Commercial property owners claimed under an insurance policy for costs and expenses arising from theft and malicious damage allegedly caused by tenants. Insurers contended that the damage was not malicious damage as it had occurred in the process of the tenants removing their property or alternatively had occurred prior to the tenants’ departure and amounted to dilapidations under the lease. The burden of showing the loss arose from malicious damage was on the owners. Only a few aspects of the claimed losses were caused by malicious conduct. There was no evidence of any loss from theft or attempted theft.

Book recommendation: Rumpole at Christmas by John Mortimer

Horace Rumpole is not overfond of the rituals of Christmas: turkey, tinsel and the like. But happily the festive season is not one respected by the criminal fraternity; meaning that celebrations in the Rumpole household are frequently disturbed in most-welcome ways. There’s the suspicious Father Christmas at Equity’s Court’s festive party. The actor who goes missing from the panto on the night of a major crime. As well as the body cluttering up the health farm (where the great barrister is gloomily restricted to a diet of yak’s milk and steamed spinach to please She Who Must Be Obeyed).

Available from Amazon.
