Hi

Thank you for your question and welcome to just answer.

Are you sure they said copyright and not Trade Mark?

Is Pets At Home a distinct graphic or logo?

Kind regards

Hi

Thank you.

The words pets at home as simply words would be too generic to register as trade mark. In order to register they would have to be supported by a unique graphic or trading style.

So in what context do you want to use the words pets at home?

Kind regards

AJ
