Attention all you trade mark owners out there! Thanks to the BBC, the IPKat has found out about a unique advertising opportunity. Andrew Fischer of Omaha, Nebraska, is selling space on his forehead through auction website eBay. The highest bidder will be entitled to have his trade mark tattooed on Fischer’s forehead in temporary ink that will last for 30 days. However, he refused to bear any illegal or immoral signs. The money will be put towards Fischer’s college fees. Bidding eventually ended at $30,000.
The IPKat thinks that this is a great idea, though it’ll stop working if everyone else starts doing it. Merpel adds that perhaps tuition fees are too high if students have to sell their bodies to pay them.
