Re: Name change- British Lambretta Owners Association Club

I agree Donnie There is a relatively easy & fast way out of this for GF which I covered earlier. GF needs to 1. drop the claim for trademark of the name 'British Lambretta Owners Association'. 2. cancel his 'copyright' registration and/or sign an agreement with the LCGB the copyright is theirs* 3. l...

Re: Name change- British Lambretta Owners Association Club

and mine DM, Kev is a great ambassador for scootering in general and 'Lambrettisting' specifically.

I think it's a shame GF couldn't have communicated directly as this would have avoided any doubt or misinterpretation, but we are where we are.

Re: Name change- British Lambretta Owners Association Club

In the trademark issue? Yes, there would be no case. In the copyright issue? The LCGB still have a case here, since GF has claimed 'something' is registered with the copyright service for 10 years. Now, this can only be imagery and if it is or resembles anything 'likely to confuse' image wise to ori...

Re: Name change- British Lambretta Owners Association Club

To be fair WM, a good deal of LCGB members don't bother signing on for the BSM - I do it religiously though but many don't. I have no issue with the name. I do have an issue with the logo however as it is far too close to the BLOA logo to not be regarded as liable to 'confuse'. I do however feel the...

Re: Name change- British Lambretta Owners Association Club

BTW Eden, I know you haven't 'hitched your trailer' but you have been as conspicuous in your support of GF as much as Timbo and a few others as Nic & I have of the LCGB, so you can see why others would think this way. I don't mind if people think I have made my preferred camp clear on this forum, I ...

That's just a slur.
Really?

No, not at all, you only have to read this thread and the others like it on this very forum to see what statements were made, what questions asked and what verifiable facts were then confirmed.

I.e. Lots, Lots and none.

It can't be a slur if it's factual.

Re: Name change- British Lambretta Owners Association Club

On a serious note.
I'm sure it will all come out in the end and I for one will enjoy reading it all.
No one can possibly expect Gavin to give ANY factual information, regardless of legal action.

Re: Name change- British Lambretta Owners Association Club

Ah I think wm(?) hit the nail on the head. This is a private company who keep a copy of your claim to a copyright for £72.50 for 10 years. 70 quid for an a4 certificate? I'd have done it for half that and it'd be just as legally binding (i.e. not at all). https://www.copyrightservice.co.uk/copyright...

Re: Name change- British Lambretta Owners Association Club

Nice whataboutery Eden.

Gavin started this thread, perhaps he shouldn't have bothered if he doesn't like answering questions?
