Popeye Goes Public Domain in UK

Yesterday, we mentioned Popeye-branded spinach, sold by the Allens. They are a cannery in Arkansas.

And then we saw something on Ron Coleman’s intellectual property and trademark blog, Likelihood of Confusion. Apparently, the copyright on Popeye is running out in the U.K., what Coleman calls his “beloved mariner friend.” Read his post for the nuance of the law on Popeye on T-shirts in the U.K.

It’s a Popeye fest at BrandlandUSA. Two days of Popeye. And no Olive Oil.
