Hello Todd my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
May I ask why have you been using the logos without permission?
What is it you would like to know specifically about this?
yes i did
Just want to know if its best to settle the case with them or let it go to court
They have asked for £2000 compensation which represent the amount i acutaully sold of Emirates products
and also a signed undertakings
Is that accurate, £2000?
yes two thousand pounds
Is that profit it income?
How do they know its £2000?
cause they asked me how much i sold and I have only been selling them for 6 months
Ok. What would your profit element be?
Ok - why didn't you give them this element?
They ask me for the value of the products i sold
and they also stated they will not charge me solicitors costs
Ok. If it went to Court you would lose.
So although there is some argument over the £1200 or £2000 then I would consider settling.
You had no right to use the trademark.
Therefore I would pay them the £2,000 together with the undertaking.
Then nothing is likely to happen
Of course they may be willing to provide you with a licence to use the logo - I would ask about this.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I see ok so its best to settle
Yes I would.
You have no defence as such
If it did go to court how much compensation they will receive if they win
so that i have an idea
It would be over £2,000 plus around £5,000 - £10,000 in legal costs
I see ok thanksfor the answer
