Reformation Publishing Company Ltd v Cruiseco Ltd and another

Copyright – Infringement. The claimant, Reformation Publishing Company Ltd, was awarded total damages of £63,750 in respect of its action for infringement of copyright. The Chancery Division so ruled in circumstances where a short video, including extracts from two well-known Spandau Ballet songs, 'Gold' and 'True', had been produced to promote the defendants' cruise holiday, which had been posted on the defendants' websites and on a file-sharing platform, and where a link to that platform had been sent to a large number of UK High Street travel agents.
