    I think that kicked off today.

    Interestingly, I went to put a 'fun' picture up of Emirates Airline and notice that wikipedia refers to "emirates(airline)" and Emirate. I hope Wikipedia are safe from legal action!

    If he wins there’ll let him sit up front with the pilot...

    yep, the very best of British, Michael

    he won DRS, if Emirates Airlines want domain (which is a GEO) then offer enough cash compensation and stop trying to bully and intimidate people.
    and if owner doesn't want to sell, tough

    Totally Agee pred but the problem is money and politics will always win in the long term. and emirates can keep throwing money at this until you run out of cash.

    The won the .eu think about 2 years ago and most people knew then that they would then use that to try get the .co.uk.

    Wish Michael all the best hope he wins it or can come to a deal as domain court costs these days can run onto tens and hundreds of £££££. trust me been there done it.

    well the Queen got bitchslapped for trying to take NewZealand.com so hope they get same treatment for trying to take a Geo like this
    it's similar to if a French carrier called France Airlines (but everyone referring to as 'France') went after france co/uk ffs

    anyway, agreed Tommy. you're in Spain for the conference aren't you?
    that's one I may just attend as love Spain and will be far more chilled not being in yank land. I may be going to look at a property in that region too around same time. maybe see you there for a few cold ones :cool:

    Although (and it may appear strange) I do wish Michael good luck with this court case, I am actually of the opinion that the DRS appeal which found in favour of Emirates Airline was a fair one. I don't consider "Emirates" to be a geographical name, and I consider it has acquired significant secondary meaning to the extent that I can only contemplate the Complainant in relation to it. I don't think of, or refer to, the UAE as "the Emirates". I will be curious to see what Michael has brought to the court and whether my opinion, so far, can be changed. :cool:

    I didn't know they appealed

    I don't know anyone stupid enough to want to go to the emirates, any of them , dubai etc ;)

    but, when I have heard anyone mention they are off on holiday there in barbers or somewhere, they have said 'off to the emirates' or 'off to dubai' next week

    having said that it can be an interesting subject to read about as in the boom and bust, the amazing structures built, (or half built)
    and the history behind it all
