Abstract: n its decision of 19th October 2017, the High Court of Justice, Chancery Division (EWHC) held that under Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 (“CDPA”), a creator of a TV format is entitled to obtain copyright protection by complying with two minimum standards. The first standard being that there should be some apparently identified features which, taken together, distinguish the show in question from others of a similar type. Secondly, the distinguishing features should interlink with each other in a coherent framework which allows the creator to reproduce the show in a recognisable form repeatedly.
