Thrustcode Ltd. v. W.W. Computing Ltd., [1983] F.S.R. 502.

Trial Court Proceedings Edit

The court followed the holding in Sega Enterprises v. Richards,[1] and observed that before the Sega case the point of program copyrightability was at least, arguable. The court assumed that the programs were copyrighted literary works but concluded that the plaintiffs had not proved that the defendants had done more than use the ideas upon which plaintiff's programs were based. Consequently, the court denied the plaintiff's request for an injunction.
