5 Trademarks with Monkeys on World Monkey Day

14 December is World Monkey Day. The aim of this unofficial international day is to encourage people to pause and think about these unique animals, and to raise awareness of how important they are to the world. That monkeys are popular needs no further proof than the number of trademark names that exist that include them. Here, we have selected five trademarks at random from our BOIP Trademarks Register for you.
