THURSDAY, 23 JULY 2009 Poland: traditional sound trade mark?
Hejnal mariacki is a traditional well-known five-note Polish tune played by a trumpet, which is closely tied to the history and traditions of the city of Kraków.
According to Wirtualna Polska's article which is very imprecisely entitled "Kraków want to patent Hejnal Mariacki", the Office of the President of Kraków City applied to the Polish Patent Office for the right of protection for Hejnal Mariacki sound trade mark. The office wants this trade mark to be used for services for promotion of the city and services connected with creation of Kraków's city image.
