Court refuses Max Mosley injunction

April 9, 2008

The High Court has refused to grant an injunction to prevent video footage of Max Mosley, the head of Formula 1 motor-racing, being shown on the News of the World website.

The court decided that the material was so widely accessible on other websites that granting an injunction would make very little practical difference and would be a futile gesture.

The decision illustrates the practical difficulty of preventing publication of material that is widely available on the internet.
