Curtains for Harrisons

Byron and Byron, manufacturer of curtain poles, has obtained an interlocutory injunction preventing Harrison Drape infringing copyright in design of one of its curtain poles. The injunction prevented Harrison Drape exhibiting its version of the pole at the Home Interiors Show at London's Earls Court. Simon Clark of Davenport Lyons says a full hearing is anticipated over the copyright over the pole which Byron and Byron claims is virtually identical to its pole. In the meantime, a Chancery motion in the action is scheduled to be heard on 8 December.
