Seen it on the Vine...By Henrietta Homewood, Alex Kelham
Whilst Germany is basking in the glory of its victory in the World Cup, ending 24 years of hurt, was there any chance for FIFA to savour the moment and congratulate themselves on another top class global sports event? Or were their lawyers busy sending takedown notices to Vine and other video sharing websites, requiring that they remove videos of highlights from the tournament?
Jackson ReformsBy Paula Barry
Lord Justice Jackson undertook a review of litigation procedure in 2009 with particular emphasis on the concerns expressed by the judiciary and others in relation to the high cost of litigation. This resulted in the publication of two reports (interim and final) in 2009/10, which made numerous recommendations proposing radical changes to litigation procedure. Many of the recommendations contained in the report have now been implemented.
