In Seven Network (Operations) Ltd v Brown [2013] NSWSC 372 the Supreme Court of New South Wales has ordered that Melanie Brown - aka 'Scary Spice' of the Spice Girls - be restrained from appearance on television in Australia as a performer other than for the Seven Network in 2013.

Brown and a company controlled by her husband had entered into an agreement that would see her act as a judge in 2013 on the Nine Network's Australia's Got Talent.

Hammerschlag J concluded that Brown was required under a previous agreement to provide her exclusive services to Seven in 2013. Seven was entitled to performance of that obligation.
