NOT MUCH CAMILLA AROUND


Noting that Camilla Parker-Bowles will soon be married to Charles, Prince of Wales and heir to the thrones of England and Scotland, the IPKat wondered whether any speculative CAMILLA applications were finding their way on to the UK trade mark register. Whether because (i) Camilla is less popular than the late Princess Diana, (ii) someone is exercising great vigilance in discouraging such applications or (iii) the name CAMILLA is not seen as possessing any inherent commercial attraction, it seems to be business as usual for the trade mark professions. The IPKat's search listed just four CAMILLAs, the most senior of which dated back to 1972. Not to be outdone, Merpel then checked out CAMILLA AND CHARLES and CHARLES AND CAMILLA combinations, but there were none on file. There is no overt evidence of gold-digging, though all of this could change in the event that the cautious Brits finally warm to the good lady.

Every dog has his day -- but when will happiness smile on the Prince of Wales?
