Trademark renewal from Intellectual Property Agency Ltd? Beware!
Red Rhino recently received a official-looking document from the Intellectual Property Agency Ltd (The Broadgate Tower, 20 Primrose Street, London, EC2A 2EW) reminding us that our trademark for the “Red Rhino” name will shortly expire and requesting a payment of £1280.
Considering that a ten-year trademark renewal through the official UK Intellectual Property Office costs only £200, this ‘reminder’ letter from IPAL obviously raised some suspicion. A Google search shows that we’re not the first company to receive this scam letter, so if you receive one too, we suggest you file it in the shredder.
