SA designer loses her name
South Africa now has its own Elizabeth Emanuel. Yesterday, the Cape High Court held that clothing designer Jenni Button had transferred all rights to trade using her own name to her erstwhile company Jenni Button (Pty) Ltd. She later resigned from this company and may now only use her name to trade overseas - all local rights were sold to the company. The judgment is not yet available online so comparisons with Emanuel v Continental Shelf 128 Ltd (C-259/04)ETMR 56, 750 will have to wait.
