Browne Jacobson scores victory for Wolverhampton Wanderers over badge copyright claim

20 May 2019

Browne Jacobson is delighted to have assisted Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club to successfully defend a copyright infringement claim made against it which relates to the club’s iconic wolf head design. The club has used this design as an element of its badge since 1979.

The trial commenced in the High Court on 9 May 2019 and was brought to an end by the judgment of Nugee J which he read out in Court on 15 May 2019. The club’s defence was 'entirely successful', the action was dismissed and the claimant was ordered to pay the club’s costs - one of the very many successes for the newly promoted premiership club this season.

Our team of IP specialists for this matter was headed up by Legal Director Bonita Trimmer who was ably assisted by Faye McConnell and Aidan Southall. Mark Daniels (Partner) who oversaw the matter, noted our team had secured “a fantastic result for a very exciting client”.
