French court to rule on €1.5 million damages claim over topless photos of the Duchess of Cambridge

[France's Closer magazine could be ordered to pay up to €1.5 million (£1.3m) in damages today for for publishing topless pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge in southern France. A court in Nanterre, west of Paris, is due to rule on Tuesday afternoon whether the photos breached the Duchess's privacy during a three-day break with her husband, the Duke of Cambridge, in a chateau in Provence, southern France, in September 2012]

According to Ritzau, the fines were the highest possible.

- Still peanuts though, so a reform of the fines and penalties is overdue IMO.

The damages are also peanuts. The sum isn't big enough to deter other magazines from doing something similar in the future.

Peanuts is a good description of this "fine" they've been ordered to pay. Magazines and publications pay way more than that for photos and this is just a drop in the bucket to them. This fine is just a slap on the wrist and won't deter them from doing the same thing again given the chance.

The damages were always going to be token. The main point is the Magazine was found guilty of breaching the Cambridges privacy.

So you think this is a big win for WnK? I also am glad the magazine was found guilty but I do wish some of these fines went into the millions.

One thing that is very much a positive is that some charity is going to benefit from the amount fined. If I remember right, its been said that any award will be donated to charity. Please correct me if I'm wrong on this.

I don't care about charity I care about the privacy issues this case has brought up. Happy WnK never backed down from seeking justice and I hope Kate will never be violated like that again, though I feel if it never happens again it will because she will be more cautious but the vultures will still try to get pix.
