The fun ofIntellectual Property Rightsis discussing why a logo of a horse is similar to an other logo with a horse. And why gigantic balloons are copyrighted. The variety of products is also very interesting from new developed rubbish instruments to the state of the art design.
In Belgium there is an I.P. matter concerning spicemills. Spice mills? Yes mills that enables you to crush dry spices. These spice mills are named NjamieNjamie. ChefPeterGoossens, owner of Njam!, a television cookingchannel, is angry.
Trust Graphics, the company behind NjamieNjamiehas alreadyreceiveda cease and desist letterin which it is accused ofa violation oftrademark rights.Grounds: confusionand free riding. The letteralso states that there is a hint of bad faith as PeterGoossens and KristofLeemans,manager oftheTrust Graphics, live in the same city of Kruishoutem.
Trust Graphics does not agree. The namesounds different,the device elementsdiffers.The two companiesarein a totally differentmarket.It is alsodebatable whetherthe children’sword “njam“ can be monopolized.
The trademark NJAM! has been registered for many products andservices, includingherbs. As is Njamie Njamie. So probably the parties see each other in court. For MarkMatters.com it is lunch time as talking about food makes hungry.
