Don't get ambushed by the Commonwealth GamesBy Alex Kelham
The World Cup is in its final stages, Wimbledon is over and the Tour de France is back in its country of origin, so what's next? Answer: the Commonwealth Games. As the BBC starts promoting its coverage of the "Friendly Games", marketers will no doubt also begin to turn to Glasgow 2014 for inspiration. But marketers should be warned, legislation introduced across the UK in 2008 gives the Glasgow 2014 Organising Committee strong powers to prevent ambush marketing in relation to the Commonwealth Games, which start on 23 July, in the UK.

Lord Justice Jackson undertook a review of litigation procedure in 2009 with particular emphasis on the concerns expressed by the judiciary and others in relation to the high cost of litigation. This resulted in the publication of two reports (interim and final) in 2009/10, which made numerous recommendations proposing radical changes to litigation procedure. Many of the recommendations contained in the report have now been implemented.
