Wade and another v British Sky Broadcasting Ltd

Equity – Breach of confidence. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the claimants' appeal against a decision of the Chancery Division, in which it was held that the defendant company had not misused confidential information in producing a television programme that was similar to an idea of the claimants'. Among other things, the judge's analysis had not been vitiated by errors of law, and he had not made wrong inferences.
