UPDATE: Costs and damages orders in karaoke infringement case

In our previous post we attempted to calculate the amount of general versus additional damages karaoke lounge K Square Pty Ltd (K Square) was to pay Top Plus Pty Ltd (Top Plus) for copyright infringement.

Now, orders of Federal Magistrate Raphael clarify that K Square is to pay Top Plus $47,041.20 plus $5,829.90 interest in general damages.  K Square was ordered to pay an extra $80,000 in additional damages. 

Costs orders against K Square included (unless agreed) indemnity costs after the date the applicants had made a “genuine” offer of settlement which K Square had “unreasonabl[y]” rejected.
