If you're a mere youngster of 74, how did you survive the cull?

People here are mentioning about getting a solicitor involved. My wife is a solicitor - but not a solicitor who specialises in copyright or employment law, so she can't and won't help you.

However, there is one thing she always says to people that mention about getting a solicitor involved. That is: Only employ a solicitor unless you have explored all avenues and failed to get a satisfactory result. In other words, only get a lawyer involved as an absolute last resort - and if you have money to burn. If you do get a lawyer involved, the damages you *might* get may not even cover the solicitors fees and you could end up considerably worse off.

If it were me I'd be sticking my size 10 boot up that hippie git Lord Bath's arse! I wonder what would happen if someone stole the copyright to one of his so say 'artworks'......Can't somehow see him sitting back and being taken for a ride!.....

Perhaps you should try and get in touch with him direct and see what he has to say about it?

Thanks Contemp...... yes it certainly will be the last resort. I've hod one solicitor who specialises in this sort of thing offering to "write to them" requesting payment for £200 which seems quite reasonable but I'm still hoping they will come up with something with a second letter from me.

Good idea Ade...... I need to find his personal address to bypass the CEO etc. although his nibs doesn't actually run the business now, it's his son Ceawlin and his sidekick David Bradley. Good idea yes but it would probably still filter down to Bradley!

Plenty to think about.

He's got his own website and apparently he can be contacted directly though that? www.lordbath.co.uk I know his son runs it all now but it might be worth a punt. I've met him and his son on several occasions, I won't say how Wink but always thought he was a bit of a fruitcake, that's rich coming from me Wink Much preferred his Father, who was always very amiable and an all round nice chap before he passed away, what was it in 92 I think.....I digress, anyway as I said might be worth a punt.

That approach can be quite effective.

My old boss always maintained that if you can't get any sense from the likes of sales/customer service, then write directly to the MD, marking the envelope 'private and personal'.
I've done that on two occasions and it has worked.

One TV repair company kept giving me endless excuses as to why my TV wasn't fixed, so after about six weeks I wrote a somewhat caustic letter to the MD, and about three days later the TV turned up + the MDs secretary phoned and apologised and sent me £50 worth of vouchers.
The driver told me that 'all hell' had been let loose at the repair centre, with the boss declaring that he had more *^%** important work to do than dealing with irate clients.
