MedEntry has comprehensively won the Federal Court case against Dallas Gibson for breach of copyright and breach of the Trade Practices Act (Claim number VID1289-2004).The court found that Dallas Gibson flagrantly violated the Commonwealth Copyright Act. Dallas Gibson's cross-claims against MedEntry were dismissed by the Judge as spurious.
MedEntry was awarded a significant sum in court costs (please click here). In addition, damages are yet to be pursued. This will result in Gibson becoming bankrupt for the fourth time.
The Judge was scathing of Gibson. Her Honour labelled him 'dishonest', criticised his qualifications as 'slight', described his conduct as 'reprehensible' and concluded that he 'fabricated' evidence' (including letters) and was 'prepared to mislead and tell untruths in order to secure business.' Gibson is in contempt of the Court by criticising the Judge and by not complying with the Court's orders.
