    I don't think English copyright laws work like normal cases in this regard, someone explained it better in a previous now vanished thread I believe.

    Except the price increases are never 'across the board'.

    Would have to take into account the overall sales, which I can't be bothered to do . also would have to consider the new kits released then. Example form earlier of Assault Marines. If figures include release of the BA plastics, that would have an impact on the one box, but no necessarily company sales. Particularly as the Death Company come with LOTS of wangy bits for chaptering up, without being left with half a kit.

    Irrelevant. This is an American court, and American court rules will be used. Burden of proof ALWAYS rests on the plaintiff. You don't see the lawyers wearing those stupid powdered wigs.

    They've already decided it was being fought under English law.
    It's in the early papers.

    Yup. To be concluded with CH being birched, and Tea and Scones for GW on the croquet lawn.

    If I wasn't already aware of how ludicrous and corrupt the legal system is, I would be amazed the judge didn't instantly rule in favour of Games Workshop

    English copyright law, not court rules. Hence no powdered wigs. Plus, burden rest on accuser in Britain too. That's where we took that rule, though I've seen it disregarded in some cases.

    Burden of Proof swings both ways (giggedy) CH have to prove they didn't rip off original artwork. Which is about as likely to me as the Pope claiming to be a rabbi.

    The wigs are irrelevant, that's merely tradition. Yes in criminal cases burden of proof is required, but this is a copyright case. I'm sure someone said something about if it creates doubt than the defendant has defend their products originality or something like that.

    I'm no expert, but surely British copyright law works on the same principle as all civil cases which is 'on the balance of probability'?
