    The Fail



    They should have made all the phone hacking papers to do that.

    The Mail On Sunday (MoS) has been ordered by the High Court to publish a front-page statement about the Duchess of Sussex's legal victory against the newspaper last month.

    Meghan won her copyright claim over its publication of a letter she sent to her estranged father, with a judge ruling that she "had a reasonable expectation that the contents of the letter would remain private".

    Friday's ruling said that the newspaper must print a further notice about the outcome of the case in its inside pages.

    So there will be at least one truthful article. That makes a change. That won't go down well with the readership.

      Yes if you send an open text communication from party A to Party B and party B discloses it to the papers its perfectly reasonable to blame the paper.

      Not quite sure which law they broke?

            Exactly! If Meghan sent a letter to her father then on receipt it became his property surely, and no longer something whose publication she had any rightful (legal) say in (although ethically his publication of it may be different)

              You can buy a book that becomes your property, but that does not automatically confer rights to print it in order to sell your own stuff.

              Tenuous argument in this case - she isn't making money from letter so breaching her "copyright" resulted in what losses? Yeah sure, breach and she wins £1, minus legal fees for bringing idiotic lawsuit. Now that's how system supposed to work...
