Is this the worst brand name in the world? asks the BBC in a piece by Justin Rowlett whom I dealt with many years ago over a Panorama programme about price fixing in the motor trade in which I appeared. The piece highlights the lack of portability of some trade marks (I think it's the wrong use of the word "brand", actually).
