Andy Rush, editor of the Loughborough Echo received a letter – his second in 20 years – from one of Portakabin’s army of media-watchers.
“I am obliged to point out that Portakabin is a registered trademark…suggest you use in future the generic terms portable building, temporary building or simply cabin,” it states.
Andy says he tells all his reporters to be aware of the pitfall when writing stories, but admits he failed to spot it when cutting and pasting the latest planning list.
