Case summary last updated at 29/01/2020 17:01 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Fylde Microsystems v Key Radio Systems

C developed and manufactured software which D claimed joint authorship in. D had invested considerable time and effort testing the program, making sure it performed well and setting specifications. Held:
·        D was not a joint author
·        This because D had expended wrong type of skill and labour in testing program
Ø  expenditure of time, skill and effort in testing a program is analogous to that of a proofreader
Ø  thus is NOT the sort of skill required to be an author of a work
