No scampi for Alicante

The IPKat has learned of the appointment by the Council of the European Union of António Campinos as the next President of the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM). His appointment will run for five years, his expected commencement date being 1 October, following the end of the term of the incumbent, Wubbo de Boer.

The IPKat congratulates Mr Campinos on his appointment and wishes him luck. Merpel, in whimsical mood, adds that, for those who think that life in Alicante's citadel of trade mark and design administration is no more than a pleasant blend of sea food, sun and sailing, the appointment of Mr Campinos may be a disappointment -- the letters of his surname, with a little gentle rearrangement, spell out the firm message to the entire Community trade mark and design fraternity: "No scampi".
