Lucasfilm Ltd and others v Ainsworth and another [2009] EWCA Civ 1328; [2009] WLR (D) 367

“A maker of plastic ‘Star Wars’ helmets was not producing a work of sculpture for the purposes of s 4 of the Copyright Design and Patents Act 1986 and was entitled to a defence under s 51 permitting production of a three-dimensional object in accordance with a design which was itself copyright. A claim against the helmet-maker for breach of United States copyrights was not justiciable in England because the infringement was essentially a local matter involving local policies and local public interest and was a matter for local judges. There was no international jurisdiction over copyright infringement claims and if one were to be created it should be done by international treaty rather than by the courts themselves.”
