Greta now a trade­mark

The Citizen (KZN) - - World - Stock­holm

– Teen eco warrior Greta Thun­berg said she has reg­is­tered her name and her “Fri­days For Fu­ture” global protest move­ment as trade­marks to pre­vent them from be­ing used for fraud.

“My name and the #Fri­daysForFu­ture move­ment are con­stantly be­ing used for com­mer­cial pur­poses with­out any con­sent what­so­ever,” the 17-year-old Swede wrote on her In­sta­gram ac­count.

“I as­sure you, I and the other school strik­ers have ab­so­lutely no in­ter­ests in trade­marks. But un­for­tu­nately it needs to be done.” – AFP
