Hit TV show Glee could be renamed after the owners of an Oxford comedy club of the same name won a legal victory.
A High Court judged ruled the musical show infringed the copyright of the UK network of clubs, including one in Hythe Bridge Street, Oxford.
Judge Roger Wyand ordered that the show be renamed when shown in the UK and that its US-based production company 21st Century Fox should pay the clubs’ owner, Comic Enterprises, damages of £100,000.
The media giant was given permission to appeal against the ruling.
