BlogLegal ResourcesTime Spent on Research Is Never Wasted

It all started with a conversation of Legit’s team on french fries and potato chips. Most of legal professionals (and/ or actual students) allow themselves the competence to talk about everything.

It is not actually! Only that food is a very important element of the culture of each country. People take pride in their culinary traditions. Laws – especially those on Intellectual Property – provide different tools of how cultural heritage can be protected. 

On the internet, you will get lost in information and probably find 1001 recipes on how to properly cook patatoes. You will also read that:

  • The National Day of Potato Chips is celebrated on May 14th, in the United States of America.
  • Internationally, August 24th 1853 is when for the first time in food’s history, the potato fries were sliced paper thin – over- fried to a crisp.
