In this edition, we find out about passing off and learn that imitation is not always the sincerest form of flattery, as well as discover the circumstances in which an employee can claim that protected disclosures were made in the public interest. We also take a fresh look at fractional ownership and the pitfalls to be aware of, and discover the importance of full and frank disclosure in financial proceedings connected to divorce. There’s an introduction to Silverman Sherliker’s newest team members and a unique comparison between the art of mediation and a Shakespearean play.
 

Passing off – where in the world are your customers?

It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but imitation is rarely welcomed in the business world because it usually means that someone somewhere is profiting from another’s intellectual property rights or goodwill.

Trade marks: To file or not to file?

Most will know the concept of a trade mark and many will have a good idea about the rights a trade mark registration affords its owner.

In this article, Billy Jenks considers a particular situation where it may be best to ‘let sleeping dogs lie’.
