Judgment Date: 23 Oct 2014
The judgment of the European Court of Justice in Svensson v Retriever Sverige AB (C-466/12)  Bus. L.R. 259 did not detract from the High Court's reasoning in earlier cases involving injunctions under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 s.97A requiring internet service providers to impede customers' access to peer-to-peer file-sharing websites. Accordingly, the position was still that where United Kingdom users of a website uploaded content, there was communication of copyright works, the communication was to the public, and the act of communication took place in the UK.
