(The Guardian) The Mail On Sunday must publish a front-page statement about the Duchess of Sussex’s victory in her copyright claim against the newspaper over its publication of a letter to her estranged father, the high court has ruled.
Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL), the publisher of The Mail On Sunday and MailOnline, has also been ordered to print a notice on page three of the paper stating it “infringed her copyright” by publishing parts of the letter sent to Thomas Markle.
In a ruling on Friday, Lord Justice Warby also granted Meghan a declaration that ANL “misused her private information and infringed her copyright”.
The duchess sued ANL over a series of articles which reproduced parts of a “heartfelt” letter her father in August 2018.
She claimed the five articles published in February 2019 involved a misuse of her private information, breached her copyright and breached the Data Protection Act.
