Emoticon Trademark

Category: Business,HumourTeknovis @ 6:30 pm

I have a friend who is very sceptical of trademarks and patents, particularly in the context of the Internet. So I immediately thought about this friend when I read an article describing how a Russian businessman has successfully trademarked an emoticon in Russia :o

Luckily European users of emoticons do not need to panic (or start writing cheques) because this trademark will not be recognised here :D

More details about this can be read in Russian’s emoticon trade mark won’t wash with EU.
