Presumably in the Adjudication, the "Acorn Computers" referred to is
not the real one, but the one we heard about a while ago which was trying
to trade on the existing Acorn brand, but had nothing to do with the real
Acorn Computers of old?

Best wishes,



Ian

The Acorn Computers trademark was licensed in 2006 from French company
Aristide & Co Antiquaire De Marques and obtained the
acorncomputers.co.uk domain name through Nominet's Dispute Resolution
Service (DRS) who ruled that the domain name should be transferred to
the new Acorn from computer enthusiast Roy Johnson, after contending
that the "use of [Acorn Computers'] company name is illegal and has
caused much confusion and continues to do so which is detrimental to
[Acorn] and extremely misleading".
