The London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (Advertising and Street Trading &c.) (England) Regulations 2011 (DCMS) (extent=GB) - TSI response - May 2011

TSI response (PDF 124KB). TSI has submitted a detailed response, pointing out in conclusion that local authorities wish to work closely with ODA (Olympic Delivery Authority) and LOCOG (The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Limited), both in relation to the issues contained within this consultation document and in relation to enforcement of legislation with regard to the Intellectual Property rights of the ODA and the brand owners and sponsors. The cost of enforcement, particularly to the London authorities, in terms of both time and money, needs, however, to be taken into account when considering enforcement of the legislation.
