Question 6: Can I put my branding on top of the Union Flag?
Question 7: . What do I do if I find an international biz is infringing on a trademark I protect in the same international market?
Question 8: Where can I find a decent Terms and Conditions example template for export?
Question 9: Customer uses French Law on contract. How can you guard against claim outside normal warranty if they claim French Law Decennial Liability?
Question 10: Your container has missed the ship! Who is responsible? What can you do?
@VirtuosoIP: @OpentoExport Depends on the particular facts (whose fault it was), it would also be useful to check the Incoterms at this point
