Rights in data – Football Dataco case goes to UK Court of Appeal

March 2013
Mayer Brown Legal Update
The long-running Football Dataco case, relating to rights in data and infringement on the internet, has now reached the UK Court of Appeal. The judgment is good news, not just for those exploiting information about sports matches (which has given rise to several cases already) but also those with valuable scientific and other databases. It also sheds light on when and where web-based infringements take place.
