Apparently for those of you who remember Peter Norton, of Norton Utilities fame, who sold his business to Symantec in 1990..... well it just goes to show you can patent anything these days
This is taken from the Symantec Website......(of whom Mr Peter Norton is the vice president)
"Peter Norton, Peter Norton's stylized signature, and Peter Norton's crossed-arm pose are U.S. registered trademarks of Peter Norton."
Does this mean that you can't have your picture taken in a cross armed pose a la "Peter Norton" style ? or in fact did Peter Norton invent the cross armed pose ? who knows maybe he did ? I think they are trying to say the image of Peter Norton in his famous cross armed pose is a patent ... but then again when you read it back a few times, I think they are actually saying the cross armed pose is trademarked...comments welcome
you can view the magnificent pose here
Judge for yourself unique enough to be patented ??????
Correction it's a trademark not a patent.... oooops
Other news.... 75% of the kids have gone to see their Dad down in darkest Dartmoor.... no news yet so we assume they are having a good time.... and we are actually enjoying the peace and quiet :)
