The London Taxi Corporation Ltd trading as The London Taxi Company v Frazer-Nash Research Ltd and another

Trade mark – Infringement. The Chancery Division made a number of findings regarding the validity of two trade marks of which the claimant company, the London Taxi Corporation Ltd, was the registered proprietor. It held that, among other things, both of the trade marks would be declared invalid in respect of goods in Class 12 on the ground that they consisted exclusively of the shape that gave substantial value to the goods. The defendants had not infringed the trade marks and the claimant's action for passing off failed.
