Crabbie's owner Halewood will not oppose the trade mark
Halewood International and TicketyBrew announced they have reached an agreement with regard to the trade mark ‘Tickety boo’ and application to register ‘TicketyBrew’ in the same category, alcoholic beverages.

The news of the disagreement broke on twitter last week after the Redwell V Red Bull trademark dispute caused outrage on the same social networking site. Red Bull claimed that there would be some confusion as it was similar to its own trademarks. This was resolved at a meeting between the two parties last week.

Both Halewood and TicketyBrew have taken a similar approach and reached an agreement.

Halewood International (owners of the Crabbie’s brand) said: “Our intention at all times has been to open discussions to reach an amicable agreement around the similarities between our earlier registered trade mark ‘Tickety boo’ and the trade mark application for ‘TicketyBrew’.

“We are pleased to have spoken with TicketyBrew to confirm we have no plans to oppose their trade mark application.

“As a company we are always supportive of other independent businesses and have acted with integrity at all times throughout this process. Trade mark law is often misunderstood, which can cause unnecessary concern for interested parties, so we are pleased to have come to a resolution with TicketyBrew and wish them well for the future.”

Keri Barton from TicketyBrew  said: “We have spoken to the Marketing Director at Halewood International and would like to thank them for being fair and reasonable.  We are relieved to have reached an amicable solution and that Halewood International will not be opposing our trade mark application”.
