DED insists TT brand must be protected

Wed, 04 Jan 2017

The Department of Economic Development says it has an obligation to protect the TT brand after threatening to sue a local brewery.

Bushy's revealed yesterday that it was facing potential legal action over its use of the term 'TT', despite registering the trademark 'Bushy's TT' over two years ago.

In a statement on the matter, the Government insists it must protect the TT brand to ensure the success of the event.

However, the Department also says it recognises Bushy's contribution to the TT, and that they are working to find a solution which suits both parties.

An online petition in support of Bushy's has attracted over 700 signatures in less than a day.
