Legal Earlier this week, we were introduced to a new concept in intellectual property law: the European 'Community Design'. The Community Design is a sort of trademark on design, and sits halfway between a trademark and a patent. I decided to investigate what, exactly, the laws and regulations around Community Designs are, and what I found was shocking. Think the USPTO is bad? Wait until you learn about the Community Design.

look at the government of italy, france, or england...
one seems to be a mafioso, the other racist, the third unhealthily conservative...

observe, i used the word "seems", my impressions come from the news in general, but search for it:
"berlusconi mafia ties"
"sarkozy racist comments"

my comments on englands government i have to stand for without references, but on the other hand, the net is filled with info on the countries political history...

Have you been to Italy? Or maybe you have relatives there?(People that don't hide their view of their own country from you, because you're foreign)

Berlusconi is "perceived" in Italy as a person with ties to the mafia and Vatican is not far from there also.
