Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Would a customer be confused between what you said and what the competitor says?Alex
Ok - in order to achieve passing off you would need to convince a Judge that the information you have on their website is confusingly similar to yours. You cant stop someone else setting up a business and using similar information.
The Court must be satisfied that it is so similar that a customer would be confused between yours and their website.If you can satisfy that then you have a claim.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Yes you can get a local Solicitor to send a letter and express how unhappy you are.
You can protect your business, because you have been doing it for longer.
But sadly if its been re-written enough the Court is unlikely to be able to do anything.
Does that clarify? Alex
If I could invite you to rate my answer before you go today please, otherwise the site does not credit me for the time spent with you today. Thanks and good luck. Alex
