Madonna v Associated Newspapers

Case Summary  |   1 October 2009

 

The Mail on Sunday published photographs of Madonna’s wedding to Guy Ritchie thereby infringing both her rights of privacy and her rights in copyright and also selling a lot of newspapers. The issue was the amount of compensation the newspaper should pay. The case settled with the payment of a very substantial sum to one of Madonna’s preferred charities. John Baldwin QC and Peter Prescott QC acted for Madonna.
