Actually not....but...nevertheless there is something. In Germany you can protect your inventions or even "inventions" as utility models
Anyway, I made a search to check is there something in patent databases regarding vuvuzela
And guess what - there are two solutions registered as utility models in Germany.DE202009015793U1
