A number of Andrew’s cases have been reported including Evans (t/a Firecraft) v Focal Point Fires Plc -  E.T.M.R. 29; (2010) which established that an estoppel can arise from a decision of the trade marks registry in subsequent High Court passing off proceedings, and Harrison v Streetwise  F.S.R. 25, a two day trial in the Patents County Court, which is now the leading authority relating to 'moral rights' under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.
