On 29 April 2021 at 6pm AEST, join Colin Golvan AM QC and Melissa Marcus as they discuss the recent decision of State Street v Maurice Blackburn, in which they acted for Maurice Blackburn.

In State Street, Beach J ruled that Maurice Blackburn did not breach any of State Street Global’s rights in the Fearless Girl statue by arranging for a replica to be displayed at the launch of a campaign to address the gender pay gap.

State Street sued Maurice Blackburn for:

  • interference with contractual relations;
  • false, misleading or deceptive conduct in trade and commerce contrary to the Australian Consumer Law and passing off;
  • trade mark infringement; and
  • copyright infringement.

All the claims failed.
