Who knew that the British were so innovative. A few weeks ago, we had the iGasm story where annsummers.com, an online sex shop in the UK was selling a vibrating iPod attachment. Apple’s Imperial trademark lawyers were not amused.
Now, Love Honey, another crafty UK manufacturer of sexual accoutrements has developed a vibrator attachment for an Oral B electric toothbrush. The current ad is here, but the much more interesting story is here.
I don’t know much about UK trademark law, but this suggests that there is a strong distinction between UK trademark fair use and our version.
