Meghan Markle finally receives a statement from the British tabloid about her legal victory over her in the data protection dispute


Meghan Markle just got a nice reward for the holidays!

After her victory, the British newspaper published The post on Sunday published a statement at the bottom of the front page about her loss in litigation with the Duchess of Sussex. As you know, the publication tried unsuccessfully to challenge Meghan’s victory over her privacy and copyright violations in a private letter to her father. Thomas Marklewhich they released in February 2019. When the court found they were violating their copyright, part of the verdict required the newspaper to print an apology to the former actress – and they finally did (something). Just before an actual apology, the explanation goes:

“The Duchess of Sussex wins her copyright infringement lawsuit against Associated Newspapers for articles published on The Mail on Sunday and posted on Mail Online.”

The outlet continued in a box in the upper left corner of the third page:

“After a hearing on 19.-20. January 2021 and another hearing on May 5, 2021, the court ruled the Duchess of Sussex on her lawsuit for copyright infringement. The court found that Associated Newspapers infringed their copyright by publishing excerpts of their handwritten letter to their father in The Mail on Sunday and Mail Online. Financial remedial measures have been agreed. “

An excuse huh! After the mea culpa was published, the 40-year-old received support from social media users when the hashtag #MeghanMarkleWon started to be trendy Twitter.

In case you didn’t know, the judge ordered the statement to stay on the homepage of MailOnline for a week and under the line add a hyperlink to the official verdict and summary:

“The full verdict and summary of the court can be found here.”

In addition to public recognition, Meghan will suffer significant financial damage. In March it was decided that the publisher would pay 90% of her estimated $ 1.88 million in litigation costs to prosecute the 18-month trial.

Earlier this month, the mom of two praised the court’s decision, calling it “a victory not just for me but for anyone who’s ever been afraid to stand up for what’s right”. She added at the time:

“Most importantly, we are now brave enough together to transform a tabloid that conditions people to cruelty and benefits from the lies and pain it causes. From day one, I have treated this lawsuit as an important measure of right versus wrong. The defendant treated it as a game without rules … a model that rewards chaos over the truth. In the nearly three years since this began, I have patiently faced deception, intimidation, and calculated attacks. “

Note to everyone apparently: Don’t mess with the Duchess!
