“Why is it that we now have legal recourse if we buy a motor vehicle which is defective or which was previously involved in an accident and this fact was not disclosed to us at the time that we bought the vehicle?”

 This is the question we were asked via our website.

The answer to that question is that you have protection depending on the facts in both the common law of contract and also probably/possibly in terms of the Consumer Protection Act: No 68 of 2008 (CPA).

In terms of the common law, you would have to rely on a breach of the contract terms by the seller of the motor vehicle or his/her bad faith, misrepresentation or failure to disclose.

Intellectual property procection copy

Can someone use your ideas and posts on social media platforms without your consent?

Last week we were asked to do a blog on Intellectual Property; in the sense that someone complained to us that people were using her ideas and posts on social media platforms without her consent.

Can they do that??

Intellectual property, in its broadest sense, can be an invention, an idea or a process/method of doing things that is the product of your work and/or your mind and would include registered trademarks and patents which are formally registered; but also your songs, music and even your blogs, writings, essays, articles and other writings such as poems, letters etc. They all form part of your Intellectual Property. You have the copyright in your IP.

So the question arises can someone else use your ideas?

In this blog; we thought we would answer a question which often arises; as the man in the street gets confused between lawyers, attorneys, advocates and several other generic names for those who practice law as legal practitioners.

We hope to clarify this question.

Who and what are lawyers?
