It seems only fitting that with “Schoolies Week” around the corner, the Federal Circuit Court has delivered judgment in the matter of Weller & Anor v Smith  FCCA 2827 which relates to intellectual property rights and commercial reputations in the jelly wrestling products industry.
The matter relates to a dispute between the partnership of John Weller and Jake Weller trading as “Crazy Town Parties” and Ian Smith.
The Wellers trade in the party supply and party hire industry. One aspect of their business is the sale of a range of products, including a substance sold in crystalline form, that are used for jelly wrestling. The Wellers utilise a number of photos for marketing purpose in both digital and hardcopy formats including on the packaging of their jelly wrestling products.
