More on Please Call Me - Not Out of the Woods Yet (Guest Post by Graeme Gilfillan)

Copyright Lawyer: Graeme Gilfillan
Readers will recall this recent post on the recent Please Call Me con court decision which is now followed up by a guest contribution from copyright lawyer Graeme Gilfillan highlighting some key and interesting questions including whether Mr Knott-Craig can now be sued by Vodacom or by Mr Makate (or perhaps  by its shareholders says Afro Leo), the conduct of Vodacom after Mr Knott-Craig's departure, the interface between copyright law and idea protection, and the possibility that the determination of a reasonable payout may still endure for some time.
