Bizarre trade­mark move

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

A MOVE by Wik­iLeaks founder Ju­lian As­sange to reg­is­ter his name as a trade­mark has been la­belled ‘‘ bizarre’’ in light of the free­dom of in­for­ma­tion lob­by­ing for which he has be­come in­ter­na­tion­ally known.

Lawyers for the 39-year-old for­mer Townsvil­lean are seek­ing to reg­is­ter Ju­lian As­sange in the UK as an en­ter­tain­ment ser­vices trade­mark, Lon­don Guardian re­ported.

Mean­while, As­sange has of­fi­cially lodged his in­ten­tion to ap­peal a Bri­tish mag­is­trate’s or­der that he be ex­tra­dited to Swe­den on sex­ual as­sault al­le­ga­tions.
