Not Wise: French T-Shirt Company Tries To Trademark Anonymous Logo
from the this-will-not-end-well dept
Via Asher Wolf, we learn that a French company by the name of Early Flicker, who appears to focus on making and selling pop-culture referencing t-shirts, has applied for a trademark on Anonymous’ logo and slogan (pdf and embedded below).
This does not seem wise.
If you look around, there are others selling Anonymous apparel, but trying to trademark the logo, and limit its use by others isn’t just playing with fire, it’s directly taunting a large group of people with weapons that shoot fire… and who have little hesitation in using them.
