Disputes typically occur when one company is thought to be using the name of another in order to cash in on its fame. Once discovered, the original company’s owner can take the copy-cat company to a Company Names Tribunal and force them to change it.Sweet & Maxwell says that a huge proportion of these cases are brought by major blue chip organisations who take steps to protect their brands from opportunistic start-ups who register similar names.
