*R v M; R v C; R v T

Trade mark – Unauthorised use of registered trade mark. On the true construction of s 92(1) of the Trade Marks Act 1994, signs (or trade marks) which had been applied to goods for which there had originally been an authorisation of manufacture by the registered trade mark holder, but whose sale had not been authorised by him, fell squarely within the description in s 92(1)(b) of the Act. Accordingly, the Supreme Court dismissed the appellants' appeal against the decision of the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, that the appellants had been properly indicted for, among other things, offences of unauthorised use of trade marks, contrary to s 92(1)(b) and (c) of that Act.
