Over the last year, I’ve had the pleasure of working with amazing entrepreneur and local mother, Sarah Greenwell- a talented and inventive woman who took her kitchen table idea and turned it into something that is now sold around the world. Elf For Christmas is doing really well. Unfortunately, B&M Stores have seen fit to rip off her product this year (or knowingly sell a rip-off since she has informed them of the similarities) not only copying her packaging but also copying it’s contents pretty much word for word and undercutting her. I HATE seeing this sort of thing happen, so am happy to publicise this awful theft, and share it in the hope that B&M will see the error of their ways. Respect small businesses and respect intellectual property! Please help us by sharing this far and wide to put pressure on B&M. They owe Sarah a big fat cheque already in my opinion!

    This is awful! Surely they can’t get away with doing this?

    Where does she live? I would suggest her local paper as a starter. I can help with contacts if she’s from the North? and also
    Meryl Levington might be able to advise? She’s a fountain of knowledge! X

      Yep, she’s already done that/ got it in progress and informed the other party of their infringement. The (carefully worded) public pressure is part of the effort to get them to respond/to actually cease and desist rather than just stonewall her as a big vs small business.

    Jeez the nerve of some companies. I really hope they don’t get away with this. I hear it so many times, frightening. Is there a Tweet we can all retweet?

    I see far too much of this. It’s infuriating.

      Yes apparently it happens a lot because they know small businesses will find it hard to fight back.

      It seems to be pretty much impossible to fight back as a small business. You sort of expect to see other people copying as much as I hate that too, but you expect big businesses to actually do It themselves!

Over the last year, I’ve had the pleasure of working with amazing entrepreneur and local mother, Sarah Greenwell- a talented and inventive woman who took her kitchen table idea and turned it into something that is now sold around the world. Elf For Christmas is doing really well. Unfortunately, B&M Stores have seen fit to rip off her product this year (or knowingly sell a rip-off since she has informed them of the similarities) not only copying her packaging but also copying it’s contents pretty much word for word and undercutting her. I HATE seeing this sort of thing happen, so am happy to publicise this awful theft, and share it in the hope that B&M will see the error of their ways. Respect small businesses and respect intellectual property! Please help us by sharing this far and wide to put pressure on B&M. They owe Sarah a big fat cheque already in my opinion!
