Judgement for the case IceTV Pty Ltd v Nine Network Australia Pty Ltd

D, ICE TV, created a electronic schedule of programmes to be broadcast on Australian TV each week. C alleged that this was an infringement of the copyright subsisting in its weekly TV guide. Held:
 
·        Ladbroke v William Hill referred to unfavourably.
·        Purely informative material reproduced by D is not sufficiently original to have copyright.
·        Court distinguished between:
i)         Provision of names and title information (which is unoriginal)
ii)       Selection of what programmes to put on when, and manner of presentation of that information (which is original)
