Greta Thunberg has just applied to trademark her name and movement, but honestly, it’s not about the money….. “it needs to be done”.
The Guardian reports:
The climate activist Greta Thunberg has said she has applied to register her name and that of the Fridays For Future movement she founded in 2018, which has gone global and catapulted her to international fame.
The move would allow legal action against persons or companies trying to use her name which are not in line with her values or that of her movement, she said.
“I assure you, I and the other school strikers have absolutely no interests in trademarks. But unfortunately it needs to be done,” she said on Instagram on Wednesday.
Make of it what you will, I have no issue with trademarking – however, it does seem an odd thing to do for a little girl and movement who claims to want to end capitalism and greed, it seems a very strange thing indeed.
