A proposal for the international intellectual property protection of computer software
GATT should be amended to protect against and provide remedies for international copyright infringement of computer programs. An alternative framework is necessary because protections granted by the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works and the Universal Copyright Convention have not been consistently applied or enforced. GATT amendments should be specifically tailored to computer program protection and should uniformly punish patent violators in a way that will deter future unauthorized copies.

Warman International Ltd. v. Dyer
The Australian High Court reaffirmed the need for account of profits as a remedy for fiduciary duty violations in Warman International Ltd v. Dwyer. The Court found that the fiduciary had knowingly violated his duties and profited from that breach as had two companies and so Warman should not be denied profits compensation. The guidelines used to establish the amount involved calculating the benefit derived by the fiduciary from the breach with no attention paid to unjust enrichment or the fiduciary's dishonesty.
