C revealed his idea for a new nightclub to D during a dinner party. Information included that night club would operate all night, have top DJs from UK and worldwide, and would be decorated in a ‘warehouse’ style. D later built Ministry of Sound nightclub, but did not include C. C sued. Held:
· Is possible for simple ideas to be protected.
· However nonetheless idea cannot be protected if it is not sufficiently particular and defined
· Information imparted by C was too general and lacking in originality.
Ø i.e. with exception that idea that club would be open all night, none of idea were novel
· Thus was not confidential.
