Re: Weird comment

If Joe Soap went to Memphis and photographed Jane Doe's daughter running around semi-naked making mud pies and exhibited the photograph as a print in a Manchester art gallery and posted it online on his portfolio, just how much attention do you think the courts would take of an enraged Jane Doe? Absolutely none - unless Jane Doe managed to create a huge kerfuffle and could wave enough wads of cash around to bring such a frivolous action to court.

As I have said before, the court clearly decided it was frivolous to the nth degree and awarded pretty much just costs. It was a case of the Judge deciding he'd had enough of both parties, had no sympathy for either and awarded a token victory to the affronted non-entity and costs against the newspaper. Result - neither side won and both can claim victory.
