A TOWIE-themed chip shop which was threatened with legal action by the programme's maker has been given more time to change its branding.

The Only Way Is Fish, in Fyfield Road, Ongar, branded in honour of the owner’s favourite TV show, was ordered by Lime Pictures to change its name and logo, claiming it owns the copyright on any brand name including 'The Only Way is'.

The company said it had extended a deadline but would not comment further.

The takeaway was told by letter on 2 May it had 14 days to change its branding.

Reporter still doesn't know the difference between "copyright" and "trademark".

Look its a chavs chips shop tying to be trendy, I'm told its bloody expensive and not that good,so call it what you like it won't last long, and once they have been forced to change the name and reality hits home it will be like any other chip shop except more expensive, so lets wait and see
