This decision against 1980s pop group Duran Duran is a useful reminder of the need to ensure that all your contracts and your rights under the general law are aligned to achieve the result you want. This is especially the case when various different jurisdictions are involved.

Notice provisions in contracts must also be carefully observed otherwise you may find that a notice you have served is invalid and you are out of time to serve a valid one. As the report suggests may have been the case here, you can also find yourself in breach of contract if you purport to serve notices you are not entitled to. 

All of which calls for careful scrutiny of all relevant documents and provisions before you take any action. Of course sometimes the provisions will not be clear in which case you may find it 'leaves you answered with a question mark' rather than 'finding treasure in the dark'.
