If Whyte was concerned, I'm sure they would be taking action. Are they taking action? We don't know, but they haven't done anything publicly yet. If the perceived benefit from Whyte don't outweigh the cost of taking action, why would they take any action?
I keep question the claimed "costs"
What costs is in this ""As a general rule, the right holder must request the customs authorities to take action"? That is just one letter, isn't it?
And, the last public announcement from Whyte was exactly that they where going to take further actions after not receiving the 35.416 pound and other court orders. That is their last public stated position on this dossier.
If there was money in RE/is (same)money in "new" RE, the compensation would be/is far more then only the legal costs. That is instantly such amount that for sure you look and search for ways to "earn" (part) of it.
These things just take time, lots of time. If i remember correct it was 8 and 8, 8 month before came on court list the "complaint" by Whyte was done and then it still took 8 month to first court day. That's 16 month we didn't hear anything from Whyte, did we? And still they took this costly, long time process forward.
The time between first court and appeal option was multiple month. It's not like the first day after court order date expired and orders are not fulfilled or breaches still occur you then instantly get the institutions and processes work faster, the next steps require investigation and activating new processes (Like informing TRIPS agreement member states) that just simply cost time. And when there is a suspicion from Whyte's/court side of fraud RE's part, it even is more complicated and time consuming and for sure required media silence.
After not complying court orders and with breach logo still in circulation, i can't imagine it's finished at that point.
Edit: As example, we where talking for day's, possible weeks about the Whyte/RE logo before i found the court info. But before this topic was started Whyte had made complaint in court, and we separate found the logo similarity and later the actions done by Whyte. Whyte was at that point further then we where, i have no reason to assume difference now.
