Two restaurants by the name of Aurora are battling for exclusive use of the name.

Gillian Mosely, who set up her restaurant nearly six years ago, in London's Soho, claims her business suffered when Sir Terence Conran opened an outlet under the same name at the end of 1999.

She plans to contest the trademark application Sir Terence Conran has made to secure exclusive rights to the name.

Conran said there was no question of trying to get Mosely to change the name of her restaurant. It was the company's policy to secure trademarks where they were available.
