Spongebob v the Santa parade?

In Uncategorized on March 30, 2010 at 10:27 am

As an IP practitioner I am always saddened when it comes to this – picture the headline: “Santa Parade organisers told ‘no go’ with Spongebob” ….

In New Zealand the public are always going to take the side of the little guy in any perceived David v Goliath situation. This clip shows that trying to assert and protect one’s IP rights in NZ can lead to negative PR.

Hopefully the parties can come to a workable solution before this year’s Santa parade!
