Sorry Tony,

Maybe I didn’t explain ‘helpful’ properly.

IP Australia will not give you a legal opinion or answer – and that’s because they’re not legal people.

But, they will help you to find some answers for yourself – eg: how to find stuff on their website, how to apply for trademarks, rules of trademarks etc.

Remember though, that they mainly deal with Australian trademarks. (although they did steer me in the right direction when I was looking for some things about international trademarks)

Of course, you can always speak to an IP Lawyer which will cost you money. The choice is yours.

Have you considered that this ‘demand’ might be a ‘try-on’? If this company really does have a legitimate claim, they would possibly have engaged an IP Lawyer for themselves.

Don’t give in…
