Reuters reports that HRH the Prince of Wales has successfully defended an appeal in the Court of Appeal against a ruling concerning confidential information contained in his diaries. The Mail on Sunday published excerpts from his diary entitled “The Handover of Hong Kong" or "The Great Chinese Takeaway," which he wrote while on a trip to Asia that coincided with the handover of Hong Kong to the Chinese. The Lord Chief Justice said that the case, based on breach of confidence and copyright, was ‘overwhelming’ and dismissed a claim that the publication was in the public interest.
Who are you calling an appalling old waxwork?
The IPKat often wonders why those in positions of influence commit some of their more colourful thoughts to paper, when it puts them in such a potentially vulnerable position.
