Paul Weller wins High Court privacy case

Legendary musician and songwriter Paul Weller has succeeded in an English High Court case against the owners of the MailOnline, Associated Newspapers Ltd.

The court found that Paul’s children’s privacy was breached through publication of certain photographs taken whilst they were in California. The children’s Article 8 of the ECHR rights outweighed the publications Article 10 ECHR rights tipped the balance once the reasonable expectation of privacy was made out.

David Sherborne from 5RB Chambers in London represented Paul Weller and provides a succinct summary of the issues and the victory in the case here on his website.
