£3million worth of revenue could be lost on TT copyright infringements

Rob CallisterDfE says small businesses must check guidelines

Taxpayers could be left with a £3million black hole to fill if government doesn’t act on TT copyright infringement, according to the Department for Enterprise.

This comes after company Looney’s of Ramsey was stopped from selling T-shirts with the TT initials on them.
