Why this blog?
Because most people don’t understand how brand protection works, and how this is already a big part of our everyday lives.
This blog is for our clients – business owners, graphic designers, ad agencies, marketing managers and anyone who has a brand to protect.
With the help of the very talented researcher and writer Philip Kennedy, we are deliberately writing in plain English because there is way too much information published in legalese.
Leaving comments on this blog: Comments are encouraged. Constructive criticism is fine. Even destructive criticism is acceptable. But no racist or obscene comments, please, because they will not be approved.
I am the principal of Choy Lawyers, which specialises in trade marks and copyright – mainly doing brand protection work.
