A Tidy trawl!

On 29 September, in "Trawl for Tidy Transcript", the 1709 Blog posted a call for help from fellow 1709-er Mira T. Sundara Rajan, who was desperately seeking sight of the full transcript of the judgment of Mr Justice Rattee in Tidy v Trustees of the Natural History Museum [1996] 39 IPR 501 which, as the earlier post explained, was a decision in which master cartoonist Bill Tidy failed to persuade the court that he was entitled to summary judgment in a claim that the reproduction of his cartoon sketches of dinosaurs in reduced size in a book constituted a distortion or was otherwise prejudicial to his honour or reputation.

We are delighted to report that, thanks to the good offices of one of our favourite readers, Mira's wish has been granted.  If you too have been frustrated by the non-availability of this decision, you can access it here or download it here.
