An exhibition you WONT want to miss, Facebook, Man City and Metalica (not a typo)….This Week’s Trade Mark Filings in Europe


Someone asked me recently how long it took to do one of these posts. I had no idea, but I can confirm that if you leave the OHIM Patents Register for a week, there’s over 20 pages and 2,000 Applications, so it takes about an hour and a half. I wont be making that mistake again in a hurry! Anyway, here’s the pick of the last week’s Trade Mark Applications:
