 O'Donnell, [1997] 3 Web JCLI
The problems arise of course, when a cross-jurisdictional infringement occurs and it may well be that an examination of applicability and extent of international private law (notably the Brussels Convention on the Jurisdiction and Enforcement of Judgments on Civil and Commercial Matters 1968) may come into play in respect of such cases.
This was a consideration in the case of Elanco v Mandops [1980] RPC 213 where the issue of "cutting a commercial corner" was aired.
The "commercial corner" in the instant case would have been that instead of the defenders investing the time and money in creating their own headlines and articles, they simply acted as a somewhat fraudulent key to the pursuers' stories possibly impliedly representing them as their own.

In Exxon Corp. v Exxon Insurance Consultants International [1981] 3 All ER 241, the Court of Appeal concluded that the invented (and trade marked) word "Exxon" was not an "original literary work" because it did not convey information or provide instruction or give pleasure (Exxon at 248 (per Stephenson LJ)).
