Recently, a comedian from the UK legally changed his name from Joe Lycett to Hugo Boss as a protest against the trademark enforcement practices of the designer fashion house. Apparently, the comedian was miffed about the cease & desist letters that Hugo Boss (not the comedian, obviously…) has sent to small businesses and charities who use the word 'BOSS'. Sorry “Bossku”. Can I advise you something…?
The Gordian Team will be working from home 18 March to 1 April 2020. For the most part, it will be business as usual, especially if it's something we can do in our pjs. Although the Malaysian IP Office will be closed throughout the period, the online filing system is still up an running. So we are still able to file in new applications and certain requests in relation to existing applications where we're already the attorney on record.
We know these couple of months haven't been the easiest, especially for us Malaysians :( Nevertheless, we are determined to march on. After all, we're turning the big 3 this month and we'd like to celebrate this special occasion with our fellow country(wo)men!
For the entire month of March, we will take 30% off our fees for all trademark and design filings in Malaysia!
Even though we can't do much to keep you safe from misfortunes of the viral sort, we can however, help you keep your IP safe from thefts and takeovers especially of the backdoor sort ;) Give us a holler to know more about our Bday Promotion!
