That must be some internet/phone/cell connection she has! I don't pay anywhere near that. Or is America much more expensive than the UK (for once)?

Some of the other figures are rather strange too. I understand where she is coming from but I think stretchig figures and making disingenuous claims rather defeats the objective of this exercise.

Cipher: You should not be able to copyright anything that's viewable to the public. The Parliament buildings were not created by the photographer nor was the bus. Taking publicly viewable elements and putting them in a photo in a specific way should never be allowed to be copyrighted.

What a naive comment...

mediokre: Guys, it's not just about the photos. Context is crucial: "He also took into account the evidence that Mr Houghton was aware of Mr Fielder's image (the two had previously been to court when they had failed to reach a licensing agreement over Houghton's previous infringement of Fielder's copyright), to conclude the similarities were causally related."

Yes. But unfortunately we have a bunch of legal experts on DPReview who would rather not consider the context and just look at the pictures.

If I had someone blatently copying my picture ideas and doing it on purpose then, yes, I'd tke them to court.

Some people on here just like to look at the pretty pictures and can't read. I agree with the judge given that Photographer No 2 went out of his way to copy Photographer No 1, having already done so previously and lost the case. If this hadn't happened then I think there would be no case to answer and the judge would have made the opposite decision.
