Hi Adrian

I am not at all sure what you mean by "too close".  I am the proprietor of the
following registered company:

ACN 065 556 229        Fraud Control Pty Limited

In relation to Business Names, the NSW Dept of Fair Trading considers the word
"services" to be one of those neutral words with no regulatory effect.  Yet
ASIC has allowed the following company registration:

 ACN 002 129 400       Fraud Control Services Pty Limited

With two significant words, that's a pretty close match, imo.  I will be happy
for you to devote as much energy complaining to ASIC as you do complaining
about "logistics".

In any regulatory system there are inevitably loopholes and inequities.  A
criminal defence lawyer I once met in Court made a fortune out of exploiting
such loopholes to get people acquitted of crimes they had committed.

I watched him at work.  It was a real eye-opener.  He even claimed that the
relevant law was not in force on the date of the alleged offence.  What a
shocker !!

In the trade that's called "getting people off on a technicality".

That's not fair either.  However, the system was not designed to be unfair.
