The claimant sought an injunction to prevent the defendant using its overwhelming resources to enter into and take over the provision of computer based mapping services in the UK.
Held: The proper issue was not the use or origin of the resources to be used by a dominant member of the market, save only when such resources had been acquired themselves through anti-competitive, or other wrongful behaviour. The use of such funds to support predatory pricing would not be allowed, but that was not alleged here. Injunction refused.
