What's new

Looks like we have a B&B Storefront!

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Badger & Blade was established in 2005. As best I can tell, these people appropriating the name and likeness popped up a few years ago.

They are NOT in any way endorsed by Badger & Blade, nor did they receive any approval to use our name and likeness.

I have never been there, so I can’t speak to the quality of their work, but I would be very leery about letting someone hold a straight razor to my neck that has no problem breaking ethical norms (and possibly international trademark and copyright law).
 
It may just be an honest mistake. Perhaps they should be contacted and the error of their ways pointed out to them.
 
oh boy. Maybe this establishment is paying for the logo's or the owner is a principle. We don't know, yet.

What’s even worse is that a design business used those graphics to create the vinyl lettering and logo. They should have known better.
My company had to buy the copyright to use the picture for that kind of vinyl wrap for their storefront window. No company would do it without those rights.

Uh,... No.

I know this post is way off topic but the exact same thing happened near where I live, so I just wanted to share it as a matter of the concept.

There was an Indian restaurant that blatantly ripped off the brand name of a woman’s dress shop. Subsequently the restaurant had the fascia taken down due to the copyright infringement. Here are a couple of pics.

Perhaps not as off topic as it seems. Given the barber shop looks to be in the UK (0117 being the area code for Bristol and the sign for Coral Bookmakers being visible), there is precident in UK law about enforcing brand ownership.

I'm not a solicitor, but would assume the same principle applies here.
 
Does anyone know if this website even is trademarked and copyrighted? I would assume so but I do not actually know.

Unfortunately, if it is not already protected, I fear we will have little recourse.
