As we approached the Christmas celebrations and the race against time to find THE toys begins, this article from La Boite Verte identifies the first patented famous toys.
  • The yo-yo (1866)
    • It is worth noting, however, that the patent presented here is an improvement of an existing concept in place since the 5th century BC.
  • The Barbie doll (1961)
  • Lego® bricks (1961)
  • The magic screen (1962)
  • And many others…

 

Among them, some trademarks and products once protected by a patent still exist today.

And, when we do extensive research on online tools, we find that almost 1,700 patent documents are associated with Lego, and almost 7,800 with Mattel. Inc, owner of Barbie. There is no doubt that these companies have known how to integrate industrial property to their business strategy and successfully face the expiration of old patents.

Now, why not talking about that together? Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss the best strategy you should adopt to optimize the use of your patents, trademarks, software, drawings or models:
