ABSTRACT
The article reports that MFI (UK) Ltd. is suing Homebase Inc., over its mi-home brand in a row that stems from failed takeover talks between the two chains two years ago. MFI is seeking damages from the GUS owned chain and widespread changes to the mi-home logo, which it claims is a copy of its own logo. MFI's logo uses pale blue lowercase letters on a white background while mi-home has white lowercase letters on a pale blue background. MFI claims that during takeover talks in 2002 Homebase executives suggested having MFI concessions in Homebase branches and suggested floorplans were drawn up by Conran Design Group, which featured MFIs current logo.
