The proprietor of a registered design and its licencees (the appellants) obtained an Appeal Court order interdicting two firms from infringing the registered design which relates to plug sockets. The sole shareholder and managing director of the two firms then caused a close corporation to be converted into a company of which he was also the sole shareholder and director.
