Regina v Gilham [2009] EWCA Crim 2293; [2009] WLR (D)

“In relation to the offence of selling a device which is primarily designed, produced, or adapted for the purpose of enabling or facilitating the circumvention of effective technological measures, it must be established that there has been copying of the whole or a substantial part of a copyright work, but it was not necessary to consider a computer game as a whole because copyright also subsisted in the various drawings which resulted in the images shown on the television screen or monitor.”
