Elvis entrepreneur Sid Shaw has announced that he is looking for a financial partner to expand his Elvisly Yours merchandising business. Shaw’s business is built on his 1999 Court of Appeal victory against Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc. At the trial Laddie J upheld the right of every person to call his house or even his dog Elvis without fear of legal reprisal. The Court of Appeal added that it could not be assumed that “only a celebrity or his successors may ever market his own character”.

At present Sid has granted more than 300 licences for the use of his ELVISLY YOURS trade mark for Elvis memorabilia. “My trade marks give official status to my products and I believe they give a licence to print money”, the Sunday Telegraph Business News reports him as saying: “I would like to find a financial partner with balls, drive and imagination to help me rock and roll, developing a worldwide Elvis business”.

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.
