It’s the time of year when not much happens at universities except exams, marking exams, and meetings about exam marks – at least that’s what June means here at Imperial. So things have been a bit quiet on this side of the Royal Institution trademark business. But then things have been quiet on their end as well.
Nevertheless, a request has been put in to get a copy of the trademark application file. This is the first step towards a challenge, since at the moment we don’t know the details of what might be challenged. Current informal legal opinion from several directions remains that trademarking ‘Christmas Lecture(s)’ is very dodgy indeed.
More news, as they say, when we have it.
