With a series of no less than ten posts on the annual Marques conference in Baveno, you would think Class 46 might have now become dry on the subject. But wait, after all this intense live blogging, we have little bits of lighter extra content, just like the hidden bonus on a DVD.
First, among the many incredible pieces in Shane Smyth introductory presentation, there was an Irish trademark application which could indeed be the new paradigm for specification crafting. So, while the ECJ has to deal with the scope of CTMs featuring class heading, someone in the European Union actually reached degrees of precision unknown even on the other side of the ocean.
Shane was kind enough to provide Class 46 with a copy of said trademark. It was filed for a "public service system for directing motorists from outside a town to a public convenience. Incorporating a sewage system and three or more short term parking spaces adjacent to the said public convenience."
Also in the direct prolongation of the Italian conference, as this blogger was enjoying a week-end in Milan, he passed by a "Mela Store" where the blue shirts of the salesmen and pomaceous fruits references were somehow reminiscent of the store in Kunming that made the news last July.
