Merry Christmas to Peter Wilson. When it was suggested that Peter Wilson should be independent of the old board so that we can have a fresh start Peter responded with "That's your issue". Summary of the meeting here: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=594

Alex Malley still "Naked CEO" ???

Post by CanberraExCPA » Fri Jul 14, 2017 4:37 pm

Hi, I just heard on 2GB radio earlier today ( 14/7/17) an interview by Alex Malley which was promoted as the Naked CEO???
According to all of the published material the Naked CEO copyright is owned by CPA Australia. Since Malley has now resigned from CPA Australia it would appear that there is a question about "passing off" under the TPA. If the name ( any copyright) is owned by CPA Australia, how come he is still using it in radio interviews. I also wonder what the position is with the income rights from the book. Once again, I checked and copyright in the book is owned by CPA Australia. This is another issue that "niggles" me and should be the subject of questions. I would have thought the last thing CPA Australia would want is for Malley to be regarded as continuing to represent CPA Australia through the Naked CEO banner? What do other people think?

Someone did report this to 2GB last week. He was introduced as The Naked CEO. I think that is wrong and should be reported to 2GB and I would think CPA Australia should take that up with 2GB if anyone wants to report it.
