Submission + - Your boss has no right to your emails held by a third party (UK) (theregister.co.uk)

concealment writes: "Adkins had been seconded by Dockwise from another company, Cadenza Management, which was actually his employer — so all of his emails had been forwarded from Fairstar’s servers to his Cadenza address.

Dockwise claims that Fairstar’s servers had deleted the emails when they sent them on to Adkins' other address, a claim that Adkins disagrees with.

Wherever the emails are located, the judge said they were not the property of Dockwise.

“There are no compelling practical reasons that support the existence of a proprietary right — indeed, practical considerations militate against it,” he said."
