Interested in why/how the High Court refused special leave in The Panel case? Read Starkoff’s post.

UPDATE: Warwick Rothnie has also commented at some length on the issue. (true confessions: not sure I agree with Rothnie’s basic point here, which is that, in the end, substantial part is just a matter of fact/judgment. But while I think our law on ‘substantial part’ is now problematic for Part IV works, that’s not the Full Federal Court’s fault. That’s the High Court’s fault, for saying that ‘quality’ is relevant for Part IV subject matters. How do you judge ‘quality’ of non-original works, if not by the ‘highlights’ method used by the Full Court?).
