Cartier International AG and Ors v British Sky Broadcasting and Ors

Case Summary  |  Judgment  |   6 July 2016

 

This was the appeal of the decision of Arnold J, in which he had held that the court had jurisdiction to grant a website blocking order against the six leading internet service providers (ISPs) so that consumers in the UK could not access various websites selling counterfeit Cartier goods. The decision was upheld on appeal, but with a dissenting judgment from Briggs L J on the issue as to whether the ISPs should have to bear the costs of complying with the order.
