our legal opinions

  • Scramble v Scrabble – a surprising lack of confusion?

    The Court of Appeal case between Mattel and Zynga has confirmed that Mattel’s ‘Scramble’ CTM was valid and not descriptive of what was required in the game or in common usage for word games and therefore that Zynga’s use of ‘Scramble’ infringed it. LJ Floyd held that the similarity between the marks ‘Scramble’ and ‘Scrabble’ […] The post Scramble v Scrabble – a surprising lack of confusion? appeared first on law, less ordinary - legal opinions from Browne Jacobson.

  • Local government, devolution and powers to charge and trade

    Councils have a wide number of powers which allow them to trade and to charge for services which are often underused. This is often because the perception of councils making a ‘profit’ is controversial. We only need to consider the views of Mr Pickles and vocal criticism of parking enforcement and other fines to see […] The post Local government, devolution and powers to charge and trade appeared first on law, less ordinary - legal opinions from Browne Jacobson.
