Vidal Sassoon gets in lather with P&G

Vidal Sassoon, the 1960s hairdressing icon, says he is to sue consumer products company Procter & Gamble. He has taken them to court, in the US district court for the central district of Los Angeles, for failing to promote hair care products carrying his name and for breaking their contract.

"I feel betrayed," Mr Sassoon said in a statement. "They assured me that my name represented a billion-dollar brand, and 1 trusted their marketing- Instead, they systematically ruined sales of my products."

Procter & Gamble, however, said it was "disappointed" that Mr Sassoon had chosen to bring the case against them. "We have consistently supported this business and we don't believe his case is valid," the company said.

Vidal Sassoon claims that P&G neglected his brand in favour of other brands such as Pantene. The reason for this was that P&G have to pay royalties to Vidal Sassoon for the use of his name; this is not the case with Pantene products. Pantene is now the world's biggest hair care brand.

A spokesman for Mr Sassoon said the Sassoon product range, including shampoos, gels, sprays and conditioners, had worldwide sales of nearly $470m at its peak in 1995.

Sassoon's lawyers are asking for the termination of Sassoon's contract, and an unspecified amount of money for damages.

UK-online for business

There has already been a steady increase in technology pick-up with 91 percent of UK businesses now having access to the Internet, 80 percent having a web site and over half of businesses ordering online. Over the coming years it is likely businesses will want to focus on integrating ICTs into every part of a business — one that builds on a framework of people, process and technology.

However, there are still many businesses that do not have the expertise, time or resources to tap into these opportunities and need guidance on taking the next steps, and help is at hand.

UK online for business, a DTI (Department of Trade and Industry)-led partnership between Government and industry, was set up to offer this support and advice and promote the benefits and role of ICTs and e-commerce.

Through a network of nearly 400 advisers, based within the Business Links, UK online for business annually offers practical, impartial and cost effective advice to around 100,000 organisations.

Businesses of all sizes and with different levels of ICT usage have been helped, ranging from firms taking the first steps to get online, through to those wanting to fully integrate technologies into their business.

As well as providing advice through one-to-one surgeries, the programme also has a large range of resources providing guidance and support on technology-based issues and topics. These include informative CD-ROMs, a series of publications and business planning tools, many of which are available, or can be ordered, from www.ukonlictforbusiness.gov.uk.

The web site also has dedicated sections on technologies such as broadband and issues such as e-security and there arc case studies that demonstrate how other companies have successfully integrated technology into their business.

Regional events, tailored to local business needs, arc also held to raise awareness and provide an understanding of the benefits of e-business.
