THINKING OF COPYING OUR WORK? WE THINK THAT IS THEFT AND TAKE IT VERY SERIOUSLY
Things you need to know
1. We Wotmalike.com and Wotmalike.co.uk, including Charlton Hall Designs (our equestrian/country brand) Geordie Mugs, Scouse Stuff, Canny Good, North Divide, Yorkshire Yorkshire, Calm Doon, Mam Cards & Gifts and Wot Fettle) have researched in depth any traders/producers of Regional related goods before commencement of this business (November 2009). We have been respectful not to copy or remove anyone’s livelihood and respect others work which was available at this time and therefore expect the same in return.
2. One of our main supporters is a Solicitor with a wealth of intellectual property rights knowledge and who has pledged us UNLIMITED LEGAL ASSISTANCE should we need to enforce any copyright issues.
3. All our work has been legally lodged for copyright with a reputable copyright agency at the date of origination by BRIFFA .
This is a costly exercise per piece of work. We see as an investment/insurance in our business.
4. Should we feel you are breaching any of our design rights we will in the first instance write/email you ourselves asking for your reasons behind this. PLEASE BE AWARE AT THIS POINT WE WILL HAVE COLLATED EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT ANY PERCEIVED BREACH.
5. If you are stupid enough not to cease we will then challenge you with a Form of Enforcement presented by our legal representative and commence proceedings against you to recover any losses incurred by us.
6. Whilst we have no legal right over Regional sayings – we can enforce the way they are presented should we feel they are in breach of any of our designs. For example if text is an integral part of our design and we feel it is presented in the same way for monetary gain this could be deemed to be in breach of the Common Law Action – "Passing off". We will then commence sections 4 and 5 as above.
7. We are not unprofessional amateur artists trying to scratch a living. THIS IS OUR LIVELIHOOD AND WE WILL PROTECT IT.
