Does the Swydda Batent know about this?

According to the BBC, the following video has become an overnight success on YouTube.

Newport (Casnewydd) is of course the home of the Intellectual Property Office (Swydda Batent). Eat your hearts out WIPO. The only musical video I can find for Geneva on YouTube is Irish.

And talking of the Emerald Isle, when I asked Eddie O’Gorman whether there was anything similar for Kilkenny (the home of the Irish Patents Office, he said:

“hilarious! Went there once, some guy on radio recently said it was like Seattle as it had Starbucks there and other cafes…”

Yorkshire exile, Benny Austwick, co-author and performer of the excellent Ben and Arnie podcasts, tweeted:

“ha I love that vid. Blogged it a week or so ago. It’s very true.”

Artist Melanie McDonald chirped “Ha ha, gr8.”


About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
