Dave Griffiths – C U In Court (King Cnut)

By | Published on Monday 12 August 2013

Dave Griffiths, otherwise known as King Cnut, tells us all about his legal battle with French Connection over trademark and copyright laws and abusing other brands’ logos. Aided by a hilarious slideshow and a rack of t-shirts, we discover the tale of a major worldwide company trying to crush the little guy…and failing. It’s such an interesting and engaging story that it’s almost OK there aren’t really any jokes. Griffiths becomes obsessed with getting revenge on the company, to the point that his own life starts to fall apart. This may sound a little tragic, but he’s so passionate about what he’s doing that you go with him. A great story and very entertaining, just don’t expect too many laugh-out-loud moments.

Just The Tonic at The Tron, until 25 Aug (not 13), 3.40pm.
