I've just now located PV's post. He wrote "I've just spoken to Companies House, reporting them for fraudulently trying to pass themselves off as someone else and had a very informative conversation with the person on the phone." I suspect the "very informative conversation" may very well have included an explanation of why the 'new' Acorn is able to use the name.
He did also say they were going to launch an investigation, which is why I didn't think his complaint was actually about the name itself - since I'd expect people working at Companies House to know what can and can't be done - but the claim on 'our' Acorn's history. In retrospect, I suspect one complaint, leading to an explanation, may then have become the other complaint.
