The recent decision involving Moneyweb and Media24 (Moneyweb (Pty) Limited v Media 24 Limited & Another  ZAGPJHC 81) is an important one for copyright lawyers in South Africa. It is the first time that two provisions relating to news reporting of the Copyright Act, 1978 have been judicially considered, namely, s12(1)(c)(i) and s12(8)(a).
