Judgement for the case Schweppes Ltd v Wellingtons Ltd

C produced the drink ‘Schweppes’. D produced a bubble bath almost identical in appearance to a bottle of Schweppes, but called ‘Schlurppes’. C sued for breach of copyright. Held:
 
·        Parody is irrelevant to issue of infringement.
·        Thus as a substantial part had been copied, there was infringement.
