Law: Please, please don’t keep using car manufacturers trademarks

At Lawgistics we get a steady stream of problems from clients who use manufacturers trademarks in various ways leading to an approach from some fairly aggressive law firms who want to extract quite serious amounts of money for the use of the trademark!

The most popular problem trademarks appear to the Mercedes mark, the Jaguar leaping Jaguar and BMW but others pop up from time to time.

Car retailers often will fall foul of the legislation when showing a prestige car on their advertisements/letterheads.

Service/repair sectors often show such signs on large signage boards when offering specialist services.
