  • R (Animal Defenders International) v Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport
    • House of Lords
    • 12 Marzo 2008

    But it is highly desirable that the playing field of debate should be so far as practicable level. The rights of others which a restriction on the exercise of the right to free expression may properly be designed to protect must, in my judgment, include a right to be protected against the potential mischief of partial political advertising.

    The weight to be accorded to the judgment of Parliament depends on the circumstances and the subject matter. Thirdly, legislation cannot be framed so as to address particular cases. A general rule means that a line must be drawn, and it is for Parliament to decide where. The drawing of a line inevitably means that hard cases will arise falling on the wrong side of it, but that should not be held to invalidate the rule if, judged in the round, it is beneficial.

  • R (Animal Defenders International) v Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)

    In summary, the necessity for restrictions on political/social advocacy broadcast advertising outside elections periods has been convincingly shown. It is necessary to protect the rights of others through preventing undue access to the broadcast media based on willingness and ability to pay. At root it supports the soundness of the framework for democratic public debate. The broadcast media remain pervasive and potent throughout the period between elections.

  • Westminster City Council v Secretary of State for Housing Communities and Local Government
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)

    I do not consider that the evidence here could permit of any conclusion other than that the kiosk served a dual purpose. Part of its purpose was for the operator's network, as a telephone kiosk. There was no suggestion from the DL or the parties that the Inspector had or could have considered the advertising panel, for which separate consent had to be obtained, to be legally insignificant or merely incidental to the telecommunications use.

  • O2 Holdings Ltd v Hutchison 3G UK Ltd (Application for Interim Injunction)
    • Chancery Division
    • 09 Noviembre 2004

    It is right that bubbles, although bubbles by no means identical to the bubbles in this advertisement, have been used extensively by the claimants and I am left with what may only be a lawyer's strong suspicion that the defendant have used the bubbles as a way of emphasizing the unfavourable nature of the comparison which is being made, an impression which is reinforced by the fact that the bubbles appear in black and white, or more accurately in shades of dark grey, rather than the rather more cheerful blue colour of the claimants' own advertisements.

  • Ocean Outdoor UK Ltd v The London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham
    • Queen's Bench Division (Technology and Construction Court)
    • 28 Septiembre 2018

    The New Leases are contracts for the rental of land within the meaning of regulation 10(11) of the CCR 2016. It has permission to use those structures for the display of static advertising and to sell the advertising space to third parties but that does not change the nature of the transaction as one for the rental of land.

  • Tile Wise Ltd v South Somerset District Council
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 17 Junio 2010

    I therefore turn to the terms of class B in an attempt to examine the intention behind the provision. First, it is noticeable that the singular “advertisement” is used in column 1 but the plural “advertisements” in column 2. It can be safely assumed, in my view, since these two words are so closely juxtaposed, that the draftsman meant what he wrote.
