Okay. I was going to put this in news, but I might do it there too if it happens because this is certainly news worthy. Maybe someone with knowledge about trademarks etc can shed some light. What is a trademark?
The reason for my question is that Daniel Ricciardo has made it a custom every time he is on a Formula One podium to take his she off and drink champagne out of it. I know it's an Australian regional custom tradition thing, and that is the reason why it boggles my mind how the Formula One governing body can take out a trademark on the "shoey".
What does that mean? Noone else is allowed to do it without permission or what? Because in that case I'm going ahead with my decade old idea of forming IAPBA and taking out a trademark on breathing - the International Association of People who Breathe Air, whereby everyone who wants to continue doing so pays me ten cents.
What is in a trademark?
