Background to ongoing design case in Guardian article

McDaniel & Co. Senior Associate, Kelly Hudson, has been quoted in a Guardian article which focuses on one of McDaniel & Co.'s client's ongoing intellectual property (IP) claims. Kelly was contacted for input on the legal and practical impact of IP litigation, and an outline of the technical aspects of pursuing claims in the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court. McDaniel & Co. client, RAFT Furniture, sets out the importance of taking legal action to protect innovative creations if they are at the heart of your business.

The Guardian article is titled 'Imitation isn't the best form of flattery if it costs you your business' and offers an interesting insight for readers into various aspects of IP. Additionally, Kelly comments that "it is very unfortunate when these things happen but with the right advice, businesses can protect and enforce their rights successfully. Doing so is a deterrent for any would-be future infringers and also allows the infringed party to take advantage of the publicity of a successful result which, although difficult to quantify, undoubtedly has a very high value".
