A HORSE BY ANY OTHER NAME

The jockey formerly known as Richard Dunwoody

The Daily Telegraph reports that former champion jump jockey will be faced with a large legal bill if he wants to get the commercial use of his name back from a former business associate, Mike Diamandis. The business relationship ended after 12 months, leaving Diamandis in control of the Dunwoody Sports Marketing name brand and logo for the publication of football programmes and racecards. Dunwoody has expressed his annoyance at the fact that consumers get confused and come to him with complaints about Diamandis’ business. However, he says that he cannot afford to mount a legal challenge against Diamndis’ use. Diamandis is unapologetic, pointing to his investment in the Dunwoody brand. He says that he has offered Dunwoody the opportunity to pay for a rebranding of his business.

The IPKat notes that similar issues have been raised in the Elizabeth Emanuel case, which has been referred to the ECJ.

Hi,

I just across sites and found that your Blogs are amazing.

Do you know, your blog can generate extra income by posting Google Adsense? If you ever know about Adsense, you understand to get hundreds of dollar per month is not an easy way. One of the most important is to generate massive traffic.

Few days ago, I found a very useful software that will generate hundreds of back links to our website. Do you know why back links is so important to generate traffic?
Yes, you are right! back links will jump up your position in search engine! If your position gets higher from day to day, you'll find your traffic increase significantly as well.

That software is Blog Link Generator!

This software so powerful. You even do not need to create links directory in your site. Is that sound good? You put your link in other's website, but you never put a link back to their site?

Visit www.LinkInBlog.com now and I so confident you'll never sorry.
