The Gola Wing Flash Logo [2008] EWHC 88 (Ch)

Case Summary  |  Judgment  |  25 January 2008

 

John Baldwin QC led Robert Onslow in the successful protection of the iconic Gola logo against a threat from encroachment by a rival footwear manufacturer in December 2007. The case involved the tension between marks which are mere designs and those which are genuine badges of origin. The heritage, of which the likes of Bill Shankly and David Bedford formed part, lives on.
