Excellent summary of recent UK cases from judge who decided them!

See here: The main speaker was Mr Justice Arnold, Judge of the High Court, Chancery Division.
He was followed by Mike Holderness (Creators Rights), Andrew Heaney (TalkTalk plc) and Saskia Walzel (Consumer focus).
Legal Background: On 26 October 2011 the High Court granted the first website-blocking order under section 97A of the Copyright Act 1998 (sic) resulting in ISPs being required to block access to Newsbin2.  Subsequently the Court has made similar orders against the Pirate Bay. During the recent Golden Eye case a Norwich Pharmacal order was made requiring O2 to release details of over 9,000 subscribers who were suspected of downloading infringing copyright. In all of the aforementioned cases Mr Justice Arnold was the presiding Judge.
