Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Do they just use the same name? Does your son use a logo or anything please?
I assume your son just DJ's locally?
?Thanks. Only where it is confusingly similar would be have to change it.
Bearing in mind your son is a Dj and the other company is a a final entertainment business I can't see how anyone would be confused.
They operate in different industry sectors, the logos are not the same and they are national where your son is not.
Therefore on any view it's nor confusingly siminilar and your son does not need to worry.
He should write back and say he is not going to do anything as there are no similarities.
Can I clairfy anything for you?
I think passing off is unlikely to be found.
Does that clarify?
It does, yes. Of course they are going to try and suggest they have a claim, it's in their interest to do so
I dont think there is a claim.
You can't stop anyone bringing a claim against someone else, even if its unfounded.
it will be decided on the evidence. Its like two sets of Solicitors, they are both going to say one side has a better claim. Its all about posturing. Just because they think it does not mean they believe it.
Not necessarily. I think its posturing.
I think you are fine. There is no passing off according to my view.
Can I help with anything else today please?

You cant stop someone bringing a claim - you just cant.
But whether or not it is successful is another matter
