They copied it - they had no right too.......
Anything like this which brings the gutter press into disrepute is a good thing. There's little enough personal privacy left.

How did they do that? Was it an email that was hacked?
Copied it from where?
(there was a hidden joke there - copy and right....one of the two planks of the case that the DoS won on.
Thomas Markle supplied it to answer the allegations made by Meghan's friends in a magazine article.
How much did she get in compensation?
yes, don't think this has been revealed - the equivalent of Frogmore plus legal costs perhaps?
She won her case against the gutter press but that doesn't stop her detractors in Ab from continuing their attacks. It's a pity there isn't the accountability in social media ---- yet.
why so negative, Canary, there's no such comments here - yet!
you could be sly and make out someone stole the info, so you could make a case in future err to win more money, not saying such a thing happened..but.
Are you unhappy that the Duchess has won he court action MWG14?

Is that because you are a fan of the Mail newspapers, or because you are not a fan of the Duchess, or even both?
The gutter press got what they deserve!!!
I thought she'd requested the case be re-scheduled for later in the year ... or is that something else she's involved in?

As I understand it, the Duchess elected to have the case heard by a court offering an 'instant' decision, to avoid the delays, and this is why the case has been heard and settled now.
I fail to see how Thom's Markle handing over a letter in his possession to the mail, entitles the Duchess of Netflix to claim ownership of the copyright? Unless the letter included a footnote to this effect.
But once again the poor dear has had her cherished privacy compromised.

You may fail to see it, but the judge clearly did not, and his opinion carries rather more weight I fancy.
Hate to disappoint enemies of a free press but Associated Newspapers and other newspapers have insurance against this eventuality. It commonly covers libel, privacy, and contempt of court.
As I read it the copyright and data protection elements of the case are still to go to trial, this is just the privacy part of the claim.
