Meghan suit nets 1 pound on privacy, secret copyright sum


Associated Press

LONDON (AP) — The Duchess of Sussex will receive a nominal 1-pound payment for invasion of privacy plus undisclosed damages for copyright infringement, under an agreement that ends her long-running dispute with Britain’s Mail on Sunday over the tabloid’s publication of a letter she wrote to her father. The terms were reported by the Guardian newspaper on Wednesday, 10 days after Associated Newspapers Ltd., publisher of the Mail on Sunday, decided to forego further appeals and published a statement acknowledging that the U.S.-born duchess, formerly known as Meghan Markle, had won her lawsuit. The Mail on Sunday’s statement, which appeared Dec. 26, said “financial remedies have been agreed” but provided no details. The undisclosed damages for copyright infringement will be donated to charity.
