  2. Ridcullys Hat

    Am I the only one in thinking that this ‘saga’ trademark debacle is just totally out of order for the elderly? I mean, if king have decided that they own the rights to the word then who will take the elderly on coach holidays?

  3. Ridcullys Hat

    See? Kings copyright claim will leave thousands of elderly people stranded and with no way of playing bingo on the British coast. Thus the loss of revenue to Margate and Bournemouth (among others) will be catastrophic! Who will stop the madness? I can hear the complaints now ‘this wouldn’t have happened in my day’!
