Re: LCGB - BLOA - Concessionaires......confusion

i believe he said that the Lambretta lion trademarking was an error which he tried to correct with the IPO although it was still showing on his application for the BLAO Name, and he says he just used the MK BLOA designs as he thought they looked nice. he has said that an original member of the BLOA ...

Re: LCGB AGM ref BLOA

I believe I may have noted the relevant legal position of this earlier? Copyright exists for a period after death -it's 70 years for published works and may well be similar for imagery also.

Re: LCGB AGM ref BLOA

Morality is a very subjective topic the issues at play here may leave a bad taste with some quarters and admiration in others . if we wind the thread back Dans comment may have a telling point regarding the trademark classes , LCGB may have continued sole ownership of the logos especially if they th...

Re: LCGB AGM ref BLOA

i believe somehere in the JETSET article posted it does say Mike Karslake consulted his solicitor re the designs , i would have thought he would have made his intentions about giving them to the LCGB known to his solicitor. who i guess as being alive could confirm whether it was to an individual or ...
