Nats win pretty legal appeal

The Herald reported:

The Party has won its appeal over how much it must pay for breaching the of Eminem’s Lose Yourself in a 2014 election ad.
In a decision released today, the Court of Appeal allowed the National Party’s appeal – and reduced the damages payment down from $600,000 to $225,000.
“On the evidence, the proposition the National Party turned a blind eye to the risk of copyright infringement or saw a risk and embarked on a reckless course of conduct with respect to that risk was not sustainable,” today’s decision says.

$225,000 damages is a lot better than $600,000. Of course not as good as zero damages.
