Every year on the 26 April, we celebrate the World Intellectual Property Day to draw attention to the important role of intellectual property rights (IP). This year, the official theme is “IP and Youth: Innovating for a Better Future” and aims to honor the innovations and creativity led precisely by young people!

In a recent case, the European General Court (EGC) had to deal with the invalidity of a lamp design and to assess whether it had individual character. It was also particularly interesting that the older design had already been declared invalid.

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.
