Nine Network v IceTV

Last week Justice Bennett handed down judgment in Nine Network Australia Pty Ltd v IceTV Pty Ltd [2007] FCA 1172. The case dealt with Channel Nine's claim that IceTV infringed its copyright in its television guides. Justice Bennett found that while the guides were protected under the Copyright Act, IceTV were not liable for infringement. The full judgment can be found at AustLII here and I will have a case summary up here soon.

Worth mentioning that Nine started its legal action against IceTV just before its intended $4m float on the Australian stock exchange in May 2006. As a result of the copyright action, IceTV had to cancel the float, withdraw its prospectus, and return the investors' money.
