It is all good and well to say the court "declared the order null and void.
In short, AFRINIC has won this case against Cloud Innovation Ltd." without
giving any specifics. In this sort of thing the court may have found that
there isn't a balance of convenience on the injunction and have held that
the merits of the principal case will provide the plaintiff with an
adequate alternative remedy

I'd be cautious at suggesting defamatory damages be sought until knowing
what the actual judicial findings of various courts are. I'd also be
cautious of claiming that the claim is "reckless" until knowing specifics
The fact that costs aren't disclosed and that the case of the 21st of
November is still to run suggests that as with the previous announcement of
legal victory from Afrinic more than mild caution is warranted.
