Page Three Settlement Costs News Group
02 September 2011When the Sun newspaper agreed with a board game company to base a game on its well-known ‘Page Three’ and then abruptly decided to cancel the contract, a dispute was inevitable.
The board game’s creators estimated that sales of the game would have exceeded 180,000 units, but News Group’s head of enterprise claimed that the game would have been a ‘total flop’, with sales of only 1/30th of that number.
It took a trip to the High Court to settle matters. Mr Justice Eady, although critical of the evidence given by both sides, concluded that sales of 12,500 units would have resulted.
