|TOPIC:||Working the Angls: Trade Mark and Evidence Law Aspects of Pinnacle Runway v Triangl
Justice Murphy’s decision in Pinnacle Runway v Triangl  FCA 1662 addressed some important issues of trade mark and evidence law. Neil Murray SC and Frances St John were counsel for the successful respondent. They will consider those issues, including the key questions of how use of a style name in fashion is not necessarily use as a trade mark, and the admissibility of evidence from the Wayback Machine.
