IT lawyers know all too well that IT contracts can go awry. That is why so much time is spent arguing about limits of liability during contract negotiations. A recent example is the BSkyb Ltd & Anor v HP Enterprise Services UK Ltd & Anor (Rev 1) [2010] EWHC 86 (TCC) (26 January 2010) case where the UK court made a huge damage award against HP.
