NOTE: The Bluebird Automotive milk floats, termed BE1, have no connection with the original BE1 electric land speed record car from 1996/7, nor the Blueplanet Ecostar BE3 electric land speed record project. Nor is Bluebird Automotive licensed to use the blue bird logo seen at the foot of this page (nor the head of other pages on this site), which is preserved exclusively for vehicles using the patent Bluebird battery-cartridge exchange refueling system. The same applies to vehicle parts as per the applicable trademarks cited on this website, which are available for inspection at the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO).
FRAUD: It is an offence for any company to use protected names or symbols on their goods such as to constitute counterfeit goods. While Bluebird Automotive may at present call this vehicle 'Bluebird', we are given to understand from documents provided to us by third parties that other trademarks not belonging to Bluebird Automotive are the subject of ongoing investigation for fraudulent misrepresentation and/or probable breach of an applicant's duty of trust as trustees. We shall report back on this as soon as we find out more. Clearly though, the use by Bluebird Automotive of a blue bird logo on their website, purporting to be under license, is a matter for concern, where as far as we know no such license exists. This matter has been reported to the proper authorities for investigation.
The Intellectual Property Office and its partners have undertaken a wide variety of awareness raising activities for industry, enforcement officers and consumers to highlight the threat posed by IP crime. We have also developed a number of information products, events and contacts for the enforcement community.
Founded by the Intellectual Property Office in 2004, the purpose of the IP crime group is to bring together Government, enforcement agencies and industry groups to ensure a collaborative approach in addressing IP crime issues.
The main aim of the IP crime report is to establish an accurate measurement of IP crime within the United Kingdom.
The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) seeks to coordinate international cooperation on IPR enforcement practices, to tackle effectively counterfeit and pirated goods. It is an agreement currently being negotiated by a number of countries that include the USA, Japan, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom as part of the European Union.
