The Little Shop of Patent and Trademark Horrors.
In surfing for a Halloween-themed TIW? patent this morning, we happened across the following USPTO website, titled The Little Shop of Patent and Trademark Horrors.
At first blush, one might think this is a clandestine USPTO department responsible for scaring practitioners and developing ghoulish regulations, such as the presently enjoined claims and continuations rules (did you feel the room just get colder?).
However, the website is actually part of the USPTO Kids’ Pages, designed to generate interest amongst K-12 students in patents and trademarks. It appears to have games, puzzles, and other fun and creative links for kids to explore. If you know a teacher, or have kids of your own, this might be a fun website to check out.
