BBC Worldwide wins Daleks court case
16.04.08 | Anna Richardson
BBC Worlwide has been cleared of infringing copyrights of a "Doctor Who" Dalek character book.
Paul Fishman, who published the original Doctor Who serial, The Daleks by the characters' creator Terry Nation, had claimed at the high court in London that his publishing company held the book copyright to dalek stories and that a new publication about the characters by BBC Worldwide had infringed that copyright, reports the Guardian.
But a judge ruled today that although JHP held a licence to publish several books by Terry Nation about the daleks in the 1960s, it did not own the copyright.
