Irish Times Settles Trademark Action against Times Newspapers Ltd

A Commercial Court action brought by The Irish Times against the London Times has been settled. The Irish Times claimed Times Newspapers Ltd. was infringing its trademark through the use of the words "The Times Irish Edition" in a new digital Irish edition of the UK newspaper. It was also claimed that the use of those words ran the risk of creating confusion with The Irish Times. Times Newspapers denied the claims or breaching trademark. An application by The Irish Times for an injunction preventing the use of the words pending determination of the full case was refused by the High Court July 2015.

Appeal Court Reduces Damages Award Against Sunday Times to £50,000

An award against the Sunday Times of £180,000 libel damages to the former Conservative party co-treasurer Peter Cruddas has been cut by the appeal court to £50,000. The businessman had sued Times Newspapers and two members of the Sunday Times's Insight team - Jonathan Calvert and Heidi Blake - over three articles published in March 2012. On March 17, 2015, three judges allowed the group's appeal on the claims for libel and malicious falsehood in relation to the allegation that, in return for cash donations to the Tory party, Cruddas offered to sell the opportunity to influence government policy and gain unfair advantage through secret meetings with prime minister David Cameron and other senior ministers. They dismissed its appeal in relation to the allegation that Cruddas made the offer, even though he knew that the money offered for such secret meetings was to come, in breach of the ban under UK electoral law, from Middle Eastern investors in a Liechtenstein fund. The newspaper also failed in its appeal over the allegation that, to circumvent and thereby evade the law, Cruddas was happy that the foreign donors should use deceptive devices, such as creating an artificial UK company to donate the money or using UK employees as conduits, so that the true source of the donation would be concealed. But the Sunday Times issued a statement after the hearing to say that the court's decision ‘completely vindicated’ its reporting that Cruddas had corruptly offered access to Cameron and other leading members of the government in exchange for donations to the Conservative party.
