DIY DISPUTE NEARING CONCLUSION?

The Guardian reports that MFI and Homebase, both UK DIY and home-improvement stores, are on tract to settle a bitter branding dispute out of court. In 2002, MFI contemplated taking over Homebase but the deal fell through. Nevertheless, Homebase persevered with plans to open furnishing stores within its branches named MI Home.

The IPKat says, if you plan to indulge in post-takeover rebranding, make sure you hold fire til you’re 110% such that the deal is going ahead.

  1. Well, what do expect from companies that embark on DIY branding rather than getting proper legal advice from IP specialists?

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
