Mobile Phone in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • MMI Research Ltd v Cellexion Lts & Others
    • Chancery Division (Patents Court)
    • 31 Jul 2009

    In the end I was not persuaded that the method of claim 1 was obvious in the light of Fox. Firstly, there is nothing inherent in the idea of using a false base station to lead one to the idea of an out-of-area LAC. Although the use of LAC in the roaming capability of the mobile phone would be known to the skilled team, its use for the purpose indicated in the Patent involves the different idea of an out-of-area LAC, and is not obvious.

  • Various Claimants v WM Morrisons Supermarket Plc
    • Queen's Bench Division
    • 01 Dic 2017

    First, I reject Ms Proops' argument that the disclosure on the web of the payroll data was disconnected by time, place and nature from Skelton's employment. I find, rather, that as Mr Barnes submitted there was an unbroken thread that linked his work to the disclosure: what happened was a seamless and continuous sequence of events.

  • Shobna Gulati and Others v MGN Ltd
    • Chancery Division
    • 21 May 2015

    A mobile telephone account comes with a voicemail box in which the account holder can receive, and listen to, voice messages left by callers when he or she does not answer the phone. The messages can be retrieved from the phone itself, or by ringing in from an outside line. The mailbox can be protected from an unauthorised person ringing and listening to voicemail messages by a PIN code.

  • Re Attorney General's Reference (No.152 of 2002); R v Robert Charles Cooksley
    • Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
    • 03 Abr 2003

    Having referred to the aggravating factors, the Panel deals with specific situations which have been considered in recent authorities. One such situation is what the Panel describes as "avoidable distractions". The example given, supported by the case of Browning [2002] 1 CAR (S), 377 is the use of mobile phones when driving. In Browning the defendant was a lorry driver who veered of the road and killed a man in a lay-by while sending a text message.

  • Red 12 Trading Ltd v HM Revenue and Customs
    • Chancery Division
    • 20 Oct 2009

    Further in determining what it was that the taxpayer knew or ought to have known the tribunal is entitled to look at the totality of the deals effected by the taxpayer (and their characteristics), and at what the taxpayer did or omitted to do, and what it could have done, together with the surrounding circumstances in respect of all of them.

  • Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Company (Europe) Ltd and another v Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance Plc v Same Lace International Ltd and Others v Same [QBD]
    • Queen's Bench Division (Commercial Court)
    • 12 Set 2013

    Having left the building Mr Mireku made his way to the gatehouse (which was on the south side of the Warehouse) intending to look at the CCTV screens there. As he came round the south east corner of the building, he saw five or six people in the distance running away from the Warehouse, down the pavement on Solar Way. He did not want to be seen by them in case they attacked him, so he hid in some bushes along the perimeter of the yard and took off his high visibility jacket.

  • Yam Seng Pte Ltd (a Company Registered in Singapore) v International Trade Corporation Ltd
    • Queen's Bench Division
    • 01 Feb 2013

    Such "relational" contracts, as they are sometimes called, may require a high degree of communication, cooperation and predictable performance based on mutual trust and confidence and involve expectations of loyalty which are not legislated for in the express terms of the contract but are implicit in the parties' understanding and necessary to give business efficacy to the arrangements.
