Interflora Inc and another v Marks and Spencer plc and another

Trade mark – Infringement. Interflora applied for an interim injunction pending the retrial of it's trade mark infringement claim against Marks and Spencer plc. The Chancery Division, dismissing the application, held that, whilst M&S's right to free speech did not justify refusing the interim injunction, looking at the case on an American Cyanamid basis and having regard to the irrevocable harm to M&S if it was granted, no interim injunction would be granted.
