Trademark law in South Africa is a tricky business. This, local businessman and former professional martial arts fighter James Thomson discovered to his peril following an 18-year career in kickboxing under the ring name โ€˜King Jamesโ€™ - a name he trademarked in 2015. In 2018, he was being sued by the highly influential American basketball superstar LeBron James in a trademark dispute relating to his online sporting apparel. Carte Blanche investigates the origins of this David vs. Goliath battle as the superstar player and entrepreneur, worth US$500 million, fights for the King James name. #CarteBlanche

Have you heard of diesel skimming? Itโ€™s a little-known, illegal operation where hundreds of truck drivers make unscheduled pit stops to allow criminals to siphon off several litres of fuel from their trucks in exchange for hard cash. The transaction is quick. The money is easy. And itโ€™s unsuspecting consumers who could be forking out extra in transport fees. Carte Blanche goes undercover to expose one major syndicate on Johannesburgโ€™s East Rand. -- Visit the Carte Blanche official site: https://mnet.dstv.com/show/carte-blanche Find us on Catch Up: https://bit.ly/32VvbU5 Stream the show live on DStv Now: https://bit.ly/3l92LhH Watch more series and movies on Showmax, start your 14-day free trial here: https://bit.ly/36PFSr0 Get DStv: https://bit.ly/3edx58V Like Carte Blanche on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/carteblanchetv/ Follow Carte Blanche on Twitter: https://twitter.com/carteblanchetv/ Be a fan on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/carteblanchetv/ #carteblanche #petrolprice #fuelpricehike #fuelprice #expensive #investigation #crime
