I have been trading under the name "Iron Asylum" for over a year, doing various trade shows around the country selling clothing to the health and fitness industry. The images that are printed on the clothing are designed by Jerry Beck and are all under the name of "Iron Asylum". I was under the verbal agreement with Jerry Beck of been the sole distributor of "Iron Asylum" in the UK as Jerry Beck was the owner,creator and distributor in the USA. However i have just discovered that the name "Iron Asylum" is now owned by a third party, i have been informed that i must cease trade and destroy all remaining stock. I'm not aware of any copyrighted company in UK that trade under the name of "Iron asylum". Hope this is enough information.
Who has this come from ? How? What do you know of this other company?
What do they make/sell? We need fine details please.
