Taylors secures claim success for Fryett’s Fabrics

Blackburn commercial law specialists Taylors has helped one of the UK's leading converters and manufacturers of furnishing fabrics win a design right claim.

Manchester-based Fryett’s Fabrics successfully settled its copyright claim against Mackays Stores Limited and its supplier Streamline Sales Limited after swift action by Taylors’ Tony Catterall.

Tony, an affiliate lawyer with Anti Copying In Design (ACID), ensured the case was settled without the need for Court proceedings to be issued and on the basis of undertakings not to import, offer for sale or sell copies of the Beach Huts or Maritime designs.

Now the infringing stock has been destroyed and an agreed sum in respect of damages and costs has been paid to Fryett’s.         

Tony said: “The case has been brought to a successful conclusion within three months which goes to show that prompt action to pursue infringers is well worthwhile and is achievable at realistic and affordable cost.”
