Restaurant should have used its noodle over trademark

It’s not an unusual occurrence for a new Chinese restaurant to spring up in London, but we have to laugh at one that sent in its menu with an accompanying press release – yes, even Chinese restaurants do press releases nowadays, though it’s unlikely it would wing (get it?) its way to The Times.

The central London restaurant in question has been open three months, but thanks to ‘a little niggle called trademark and patent’ it has had to change its name from Capital to ECapital. Very unfortunate, that.

Niggling little things, trademarks – and so unfair, too.
