The smell of success eludes smell mark registration

In order to register a trademark under Swiss law, the mark must, among other things, be capable of graphic representation. With regard to smell marks, applicants must graphically represent the product's scent. The Federal Administrative Court recently decided that a cooking recipe is not capable of sufficiently describing a smell mark. Therefore, in contrast to colour and acoustic marks, smell marks are still not registrable in Switzerland.

How innovative is today's India? The Global Innovation Index 2011 ranks India at 69 among 125 nations. These indices have to be taken with a pinch of salt, though.

Recording a Patent Licence: Is There a Reason for Doing So? | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
