Butlers in the Buff wins trademark case

A company providing semi-naked men to serve drinks and food at parties has successfully stopped another firm using its trademark.
Bristol-based Butlers in the Buff (BITB) settled out of court with a company based in Newquay, Cornwall, which offers similar services.
Bufflers Entertainment has agreed to remove all mentions of the BITB name in its marketing and on its website.
BITB said "it is frustrating when companies take advantage of our work".
Adam Davey, CEO of Bufflers Entertainment said: "We were unaware that it was a registered trademark and have complied with them every step of the way.
"Butlering is less than 3% of what we do, and we have removed all mentions of the trademark as we agreed with them."
Bufflers has also agreed to pay damages and costs.
