US TM query: Probably a mistype but you never know - Baroloc
« on: September 26, 2008, 05:47:32 PM »
Has anyone in the US come across Barolac being originally marketed as Baroloc? Marcus has not heard of this. But you have to check these things as neither spelling shows up in TESS  ::) - 'Oil of Olay' became 'Oil of Ulay' in the UK just because someone typed it wrong.

Hi,
I did several searches and that spelling didn't come up anywhere, not even on ebay.

 :o

I am shocked ;)

Thanks Janice. (It is in the book I am just adding to the Zoo) It does seem very unlikely that a different spelling was used in the USA.

...and Oil of Olay became Oil of Olaz in German because of different keyboards: your Z is Y here and vv  :hb2:

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
