Manx crafters told to buy licence for TT goods

Another local business has been affected by the Department of Economic Development's TT trademark crackdown.

Manx Crafters Gifts were informed the store included items which breached its trademark, sending a representative to inspect the shop, which sells goods from a number of local crafters.

The crafters have been told they can buy a licence to use the TT initials, but one crafter took to social media to describe the cost as "crazy".

It was recently revealed that the RNLI had to pay to use the TT name on its charity pins, while Bushy's Brewery was threatened with legal action before reaching an agreement with the DED earlier this year.
