Patently venal

Fresh back from a talk on IP for RE:tie, and I open a letter regrading my TradeMark for RE:Box.

Seems an outfit called the EIEC (European Institute for Economy and Commerce) reckon I owe 'em £479.75 for something I already paid the IPO £200 to get approved a while ago.

It's a scam. Be warned. And these can also happen with URL registrations.

What gets me is that many may not know, and there seems little the authorities can or will do about such a blatant rip-off in plain sight. I reported it but was just told to ignore it. How many might not?
