DON'T BE A SILLY SAUSAGE SAYS OHIM


The IPKat has come across this rather natty little OHIM Board of Appeal decision concerning the registrability of the shape of a wavy sausage as a Community trade mark. It's in French, but from what the IPKat can make out, the appeal was allowed in so far as the mark was applied for for cheese but the mark could not be registered for meat products.

The IPKat notes that trade mark applicants can effectively put weird and wonderful types of marks on the European trade mark agenda, even if they have to merit to them, by applying to register and persisting with the application.
