OF FAMOUS FOLK, FANS AND FOLLOWERS

The UK Trade Mark Registry issued yesterday (Thursday 18 March) a new Practice Amendment Notice, PAN 5/04, on "Names of Famous People (Living and Deceased) and Groups". The IPKat will return to blog this PAN in detail once he's had the time to read it properly. In the meantime, he will give away one of its little secrets: it addresses once again somewhat British obsession with the extent to which trade marks are registrable for badges of allegiance.

Other British obsessions here, here and here

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
