SOFTWARE: How not to get locked out of your data: read Blade v. Reynolds

Blade Motor Group Limited v. Reynolds & Reynolds Limited [2018] EWHC 497 (Ch)

The judgment of David Stone earlier this year in this High Court case has received relatively limited publicity. Yet it has much to teach us, from both the contentious and the non-contentious standpoints. With regard to the former, the judgment gives a useful demonstration of how the courts decide whether or not an application for a mandatory interim injunction should be granted and, with regard to the latter, the case highlights the risk of software licensees being 'locked out' of their software and data in the absence of contractual safeguards.
