It's like when a picture was first posted on RoF.

Does Bailii have proper functionality for that or do you reckon its similar to the RoF "hack" that is just abusing flaws in their html encoding?

Hi daddycam

I got in touch with BAILLI after reading your post. Their chief exec said:

"There are many judgments on BAILII which contain images including diagrams, tables and photos. Most often these are in the following courts (I’ve given one example, of many possible, for each):

Technology and Construction Court:

Ocensa Pipeline Group Litigation, Re [2016] EWHC 1699 (TCC) (27 July 2016)

Intellectual Property Enterprise Court:

T & A Textiles and Hosiery Ltd v Hala Textile UK Ltd & Ors [2015] EWHC 2888 (IPEC) (23 October 2015)

Patents Court:

Merck Sharp And Dohme Ltd v Shionogi & Co Ltd [2016] EWHC 2989 (Pat) (25 November 2016)

There are instances of images in all of the UK courts covered by BAILII along with many from the European Court of Justice also on BAILII. Note that many of the commercial legal publishers never had images, diagrams, tables or photos included (even when they were crucial to understanding the judgment)."

So there you go.

And of course there was the emoji judgment, which gave me the opportunity to mock up an excellent kids' book:¤tIndex= 82

Re the second link from Jamie (and given this is rof) - ref to hosiery does not mean links to sechshy stockings.

That fourth one wins by a mile.

I think we've had trade marks shown in trade mark and passing off cases for decades.

Lydia has it. Reports of Patent Cases and Fleet Street Reports have always carried pictures and diagrams, not just in trade mark cases.

well I never...

*hats off to the chaps at Bailii* a very sensible idea (although presumably if there are any gruesome pics there will be a warning).

I'll litigate more often if there are going to be pictures...

Mind you, the case I linked to has everything - not only blood guts and pictures of machinery, but conversations overheard in a pub in Abingdon...
