I thought about that after your first post. So I Googled "Notes from ...". There are hundreds of them. So as a trademark it would be difficult.
Then there are the variations. Marks and Spencer had to register "Marks and Sparks", "Marx and Sparks" etc.
eg: Spanish hereldary - Knights from Spain.
Spanish little people - Gnomes from Spain
Spanish Music - Notes from Spain (of course!)
Spanish Boy Scouts - Knots from Spain
Spanish Asylums - Nuts from Spain
Spanish Entomology - Gnats from Spain
Spanish Fishing - Nets from Spain.

The list is endless..........OK, I´ll go quietly, nurse.

Depends on the rules in Spain.
I'm think in the UK you could trademark "Notes from Spain". As could someone else trademark "Notes from Italy". I don't think the two would conflict in any way.
You couldn't trademark "Notes from.." though.

Yes, that's one of the problems of doing business in the EU. You have to protect IP for each country individually. If you are not a global giant, that can quickly become cost-prohibitive. That was one of the problems we had, when I worked for a start-up company a few years ago. There needs to be an EU, all encompassing patent law. I'm sure that's easier said than done.

There was talk of one some time ago. Not sure what's happening with that.

Is it expensive to register a company in Spain Ben? Something we will have to think about in the future for the new site we are developing I guess

Found some answers at: http://openaeuropeancompany.com/spain.html

What are the main types of company in Spain?

Quote:
The two most popular forms of corporate structure in Spain are as follows:
public limited company (S.A.)
private limited company (S.L.)
.....

Please tell me if this is thread drift - Off course I find it interesting, but it might not be to other readers... which one are you going for Ben?

Let's just say that if forum members were to restore their former avatars at this point they would be responsible for their actions, if you see what I mean.

Unfortunately, for reasons of copyright, we can only call on Officer Dubble.

I am wanted for several counts of copyright violation and one count of wanton use of another's trademark.

Like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid... except for the fact that they ended up in Bolivia and not in Perú - oh well, what difference does it make?!
