Can Surnames Be Trademarked? | IP Conversations

Why? What? When? How? These are some of the most used words in John’s dictionary. He’s pretty curious about the workings behind what happens in his life, and many of those have to do with the inventions and the workings of intellectual property in the world around him.

With his doctors suggesting he cut down on the sugar, John has now added morning walks to his schedule to improve his health. But old habits die hard, and he still can be seen sneaking into the nearest Aggrawal sweet shop. While savoring his favorite sweets, he started to think about how so many shops are named after a surname, which sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. Luckily, IP Geek is here to help clarify things.
