Poland: are the shoemaker's children always ill-shod?

Well, it looks like the shoemaker’s son not always goes barefoot... The Polish Ministry of Treasury applied on 19 September 2007 to the Polish Patent Office for word-figurative trade mark Z-330354 for goods in the following classes: 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45.

The right of protection was granted by the Polish Patent Office on 28 December 2007, R-196225 in the name of State Treasury/The Polish Patent Office. The State Treasury represents the Polish state in legal proceedings and it has legal personality. It must have been ultra-express examination proceedings. This Class46 team member just wonders what will the Polish Patent Office do with goods in class 13 - firearms; ammunition and projectiles; explosives; fireworks. Will any PPO's branded firearm be used against inconvenient patent and trade mark attorneys who are willing to file a request for invalidation of the right of protection of R-196225? Let's hope not.
