Look at the court judgement - they didn't think an awful lot of the case. The plaintif was awarded £10,000. Bear in mind he had to hire a legal representative, pay to stay in the UK and pay to fly over (Probably business class at $4,000 a seat and he probably didn't come alone) and you'll see that the court really didn't consider it to be anything more than a technical case. £10,000 is a very nominal sum to fine a newspaper. They make more than that every hour.

I wouldn't lose any sleep over what appears to be a weird decision.
