Housman: An Examiner of Electrical Specifications may be, but it’s not the same with us toiling down in Trade Marks. I had sore throat lozenges today, an application to register a wonderfully woebegone giraffe – raised rather a subtle point in Trade Marks regulation, actually: Slide3:  Housman: …it seems there is already a giraffe at large, wearing twelve styles of celluloid collar, but, and here’s the nub, a happy giraffe, in fact a preening, self-satisfied giraffe. The question arises – is the registered giraffe Platonic?, are all God’s giraffes in esse et in posse to be rendered unto the Houndsditch Novelty Collar Company? Slide4:  Jackson: It’s true, then – a classical education fits a fellow for anything. How to prepare students for anything?:  How to prepare students for anything?
