Did anyone catch the story on ACA tonight(22/04) about the big brands taking legal action on a couple of small businesses with similar names?
I am a huge fan of Zarabumba(it helps that Neda is a Canberra mum just like me) and I can’t believe Zara are trying to take her to court! She has given in as she is only a small business and doesn’t have the time or money to take them on in the courts.
She has changed her name to Z and Co. and I would really appreciate if you would look it up on facebook and show her some love!!! Her clothing is amazing and she doesn’t deserve this.

  • It is terrible. The big guys with loads of money can afford to go to court and end up,forcing the little guys out of the market

  • If that was me I would have just changed the Z to and S and I’ve never heard of Zara before, now that I do I wouldn’t shop in their store if I ever came across one.

  • Any big companies that do that sort of thing deserve all they get. A lot of people take a stand with companies like that, and refuse to patronize them any more. The companies rely on the fact that smaller businesses don’t have the time, staff or money to fight them. As if a small business like that would be a threat to a national company.

  • Sadly in this day and age, the big boys are so over the top about brand protection that they well and truly overreact. I mean, seriously, are we so dumb we are going to confuse a small business in Canberra with a huge international department store? Or a small cafe in gosford with a large chain restaurant? If by some chance someone did, is Zara’s really going to miss a few dollars worth of sales?

  • Isn’t that awful! Maybe she could change it to ZAHARA…? I really dislike big brand bullies, I will boycott them over these actions.
