Halloween and Intellectual Property
Anyone who wants to know when and where Halloween originates from should check out the great article the German Patent and Trademark Office (GPTO) published in German and English.
Fact is that Halloween, not really known in Germany for many years, has meanwhile become a million dollar business. As you can imagine, the need for intellectual property rights - trademarks, designs, utility models and patents - therefore has increased. The GPTO has picked some unusual, fun and/or gruesome patents.
