In a previous post I analysed the copyright issue in the Santam v Dial direct dispute.
Santam alleged another basis for the court order that it obtained, that it characterised as “disparagement”. Jeremy Speres* asks some perspicacious questions on the disparagement issue at the Afro-IP blog.
* I enjoyed Jeremy’s participation in a class on Intellectual Property in the digital environment that I taught at the University of Cape Town in 2009. Jeremy is currently at Cluver Markotter.
