Everyday MarkMatters.com is searching for news on intellectual property related matters. As a modern blog we use search engines, alert services and of course Twitter to pick out the interesting, legally fulfilling and fun stuff.
This daily quest can be some kind of a hassle. Take Twitter for instance: it is filled with tweets using the #trademark, but not all of these tweets are actually trademark related. Well, not in a legal way, that is.
Although it makes searching for relevant news more time consuming, people are of course free to ‘trademark’ anything they want, from ‘yoga pants’ to ‘poop’.
