Just one week to go…

There’s just one week in which to send in your entries to the IPKat’s latest competition. The prize is free entrance to CLT’s Sharing Names conference (details here) on 20 June 2006. The conference has an all-star list of speakers drawn from practice, academia, OHIM and the Patent Office and investigates the problems that can occur when the same name or trade mark is used by multiple parties and how these issues can be resolved or avoided.

All you have to do is come up with an anagram of one of the following terms:

• Elizabeth Emanuel
• Coca Cola
• Shared name
• Essential function
• Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs)
• Directive 97/55/EC of European Parliament and of the Council of 6 October 1997 amending Directive 84/450/EEC concerning misleading advertising so as to include comparative advertising

Email your answers to the IPKat at this address by 1pm next Wednesday.

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.
