Fisher v Brooker and Others

House of Lords

“A delay of almost 40 years in claiming a share of the copyright in a musical work, could not be defeated by the equitable doctrines of estoppel or laches when the defendants had suffered no detriment from the claimant’s delay and, on the contrary, had derived a financial benefit which far outweighed any detriment which might have resulted from the delay.”
