Who does the Liver Bird belong to?
17 December 2012
Alison Lui, LJMU Senior Lecturer and Employability Officer for the School of Law, was recently interviewed by BBC Radio Merseyside on the subject of the trademarking of the Liver Bird.
This was in specific reference to Liverpool Football Club, but Alison talked in general about how it can be registered as a trademark and the implications to businesses. She cleared up the issues surrounding this debate, talking through the fact that the trademark rights refer to specific variations and versions of the Liver Bird image.
Her interview is at approximately 10.30 mins in and available until 21 December 2012
