IP Hairballs

With Boris Johnson and Donal Trump leading the way, statement hair is a powerful symbolic asset for those in the public eye. This Kat has always admired the surprisingly luxuriant tresses in the IP community. Well groomed whiskers abound. These IP dignitaries aren't afraid to let you know that they're worth it with their thick and flowing fur.

So, in light of today's Winter Solstice, please enjoy an IPKat Exclusive IP Who's Hair is it Anyway? (tm) (c) (patent pending). The name of the game is to match the hair to the IP personality. Answers at the bottom of this post - no peeking!

Clearly the IP community is more trend-setting than is acknowledged. This Kat calls on our judges, academics and politicians to tell us more about their grooming tricks. Do you start with the right or left paw? Do you use pomade or just a light mouse?

Harry Styles and Justin Beiber, eat your heart out.

Answers: A (Baroness Neville-Rolfe), B (Justice Arnold), C (Justice Birss), D (Sir Robin Jacob), E (Professor Hargreaves) and F (Julia Reda.)

From above I can conclude that, apparently, it is possible to born with a judge wig :-)

Wouldn't it be good it they all had blue streaks in their hair? It should be compulsory for IP judges (current and retired).

Thanks to IPKat to bring a smile on our face in those rather dark times when one witnesses what is happening at the EPO.

Anon 0947,
Things are not great by any means, but there are darker reasons to be lacking a smile. A little ott?

Justice Arnold? Justice Birss? Surely not. Have they been promoted to the (or a) US Supreme Court?
