Hi guys,

Not entirely sure what the regulation is, however, if I decide to sell look alike goods without the trademark of the brand, is it illegal, assuming I clearly do not use or pretend to be selling that brand?

For example:

1. If I sell "Burberry" look alike scarves but name them "Warm Checked Scarves" and do not imply anywhere that they are Burberry or pretend they are when they are not, even though they look exactly the same as a Burberry scarf. Would it be legal for me to sell them?

Hope I am making sense. As far as my knowledge goes, it's usually not the design but the actual trademark that's the issue, in this case, the word "Burberry". So as long as that is not on the product, I should be good.

Thanks guys  :)
