it is necessary to pay extra attention to the protection of cross-category trademark registration in order to, on the one hand, protect the trademark of core product to avoid being registered by others and on the other hand, to lay a solid foundation to the development of enterprises for the reason that it is ubiquitous for enterprises to expand cross-industry business with their development.
in this case, the trademark category with same names is required.
for examples: category 29 meatware, processed fruits, and vegetables; category 30 condiments, pastry; category 31 fresh fruits and vegetables; category 32 beverages; category 33 liquor and alcoholic beverage; category 40 food processing; category 43 restaurants; category 44 nutrition and dietetics guidance.
cross-category registration can help eradicate applications with the purpose of following the trend and avoid similar or same trademarks in related commodities and services categories to protect your own enterprise brand.
this perspective is similar to the above-mentioned one and we still take the food and beverage industry as examples.
food and beverage industry is related to many other industries, such as “internet” of online trading, “transportation” of order delivery and so forth.
hence, we can also consider the cross-industry registration application to protect our trademarks in other relevant fields.
- “internet” related industries
- “transportation” related industries
trademark protection is regional. that is to say, the scope of trademark protection is restricted by countries and regions.

which city has the highest cost of living in the world in 2019?
hong kong, paris and singapore are tied for first place. also in the “very expensive” cities are zurich, geneva, osaka, seoul and more. caracas, the capital of venezuela, is rated as the city with the lowest cost of living.
paris has come top of a ranking of the world’s most expensive cities, alongside hong kong and singapore.
it’s the first time three cities have shared the top spot in the 30-year history of the annual economist intelligence unit survey, which compares prices in 133 cities globally.
the french capital—which was ranked second most expensive last year—is the only eurozone city in the top ten.
the survey compares the cost of common items, such as bread, in 133 cities.
it then tracks whether prices have gone up or down by comparing them to the cost of living in new york, which is used as a benchmark.
report author roxana slavcheva said paris had been among the top ten most expensive cities since 2003 and was “extremely expensive” to live in.
“only alcohol, transport and tobacco offer value for money compared with other european cities,” she said.
the average cost of a woman’s haircut, for example, costs $119.04 in paris, compared to $73.97 in zurich and $53.46 in japanese city osaka.
“european cities tend to have the highest costs in the household, personal care, recreation and entertainment categories—with paris being a good representative in these categories—perhaps reflecting a greater premium on discretionary spending,” ms slavcheva said.
inflation and volatile currency fluctuations helped drive changes in this year’s ranking, with places like argentina, brazil, turkey and venezuela all seeing a sharp fall in their cost of living ranking.
caracas in venezuela, where inflation neared 1,000,000% last year forcing the government to launch a new currency, was ranked the least expensive city in this year’s survey.
the price of a cup of coffee in the capital caracas doubled to 400 bolivars ($0.62) in the space of just a week last december, according to bloomberg.
damascus in syria was ranked the world’s second cheapest city.
the economist intelligence unit said a “growing number of locations” were becoming cheaper due to the impact of political or economic disruption.

until she saw an advertisement for a transport worker in a newspaper, at the thought of being able to drive around delivering goods and seeing the world freely, xiao zhu ran to apply for the job happily and has been doing for eight years.
although at the beginning, many people were puzzled by the appearance of such a beautiful woman on the construction site, some people said to her in person: “woman comes here to do what? hurry back home and cook!”
when i heard these words, xiaozhu never responded. “i don’t respond, it’s okay to show them with action proof.”
even in the hot summer sun, lifting up to 200 kg of goods, shuttling between the building, the road, is already a piece of cake for this beauty.
“sweat is soaked on the back of the clothes”, such description, for xiao zhu, has become the most authentic daily.
with her own efforts and tenacity, she has won the respect of everyone in the heap of men.
after carrying the goods for a long time, the injury is also commonplace. the most common injury is the hand. her fingers have been stitched 7 stitches because of bone fracture.
the legs are often bumped by the cargo, and they are all bruised and blue.
as for being asked by the reporter, “do you feel hard?” xiaozhu also just smiled and replied, “in fact, there is no problem if there is sweat out.”
