Yes,this is likely to be a breach of copyright and/or passing off. I think the reasonthat they are getting away with it is quite simply that they have not yet beenfound.I can tell you that there is also (at least) one in Cyprus, at Protaras.

Thereis no guarantee that the owner of the intellectual property will be the leastbit interested. You need to do some research and find out who the owner isalthough, because this is in a different country, although they can still takeproceedings, they may be not that bothered in doing so because of thelogistical problems of bringing the action in another jurisdiction and then,ultimately, enforcing it.
Thereis no central register of copyright although there is of trademarks. Howeverthe Intellectual Property Office who deals with this, does not bring litigationwould only deals with registration. It is for whoever has the benefit of theregistration to bring the litigation and to use the registration as supportingevidence.
Doesthat answer the question? Can I help further? Can I answer any specific points?
