circle light

The Supreme Court has once again ruled on a case dealing with the so-called ‘picture right’ – a provision in the Copyright Act on which numerous decisions are based. In the case, the question arose as to whether a well-known criminal defence lawyer had the right to demand that a media owner not publish his picture. The court weighed the claimant’s interest in security against the defendant’s interest in reporting the story.
