Pepkor’s application to declare as irregular some affidavits in terms of the use of the Mr Tekkie trademark was dismissed with costs

Another legal victory for Mr Tekkie after Justice Siraj Desai dismissed with costs Pepkor’s application to have certain affidavits and procedural steps taken in the Mr Tekkie trademark case declared as irregular steps.

Mr Tekkie co-founder Bernard Mostert explains what this ruling would mean for the company going forward.

He says although it is difficult to start a business with all these legal battles hanging over them, they are grateful for yesterday's court ruling.
