    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

    • Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber)
    • 22 Jan 2013

    In so far as a comparison is made with other children in his country of origin, it is a factor (albeit not a conclusive one) that his circumstances would appear to be reasonably catered for despite the loss of his parents.

  • 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.
