LIVER­POOL FC FAIL IN BID TO TRADE­MARK CITY’S NAME

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Sport -

Lon­don: Liver­pool Foot­ball Club’s bid to trade­mark the word “Liver­pool” has been re­jected by Bri­tain’s In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty Of­fice. The club said their sole aim had been to pro­tect them­selves against mass-pro­duced Liver­pool FC mer­chan­dise and had hoped to trade­mark the city’s name when used in the con­text of foot­ball prod­ucts and ser­vices. But, af­ter ac­cept­ing the IPO’s de­ci­sion, the club ad­mit­ted they un­der­es­ti­mated the level of op­po­si­tion from in­de­pen­dent traders, plus lo­cal clubs and the city coun­cil.
