It’s All About The Science: St. Greta Looks To Trademark Her Name

Hmm, so, it seems to be more about getting famous then making some cash off that fame

Climate change activist Greta Thunberg applies to trademark her name

Climate activist Greta Thunberg said Wednesday that she has applied to trademark her name and that of the international school strike movement she inspired — a move meant to protect the movement from misuse for commercial purposes.

In an Instagram post, the 17-year-old Swede said that she and fellow activists have “absolutely no interests” in trademarks “but unfortunately it needs to be done.”

Thunberg said the application covers her name, the name of the Fridays for Future movement, and “Skolstrejk för klimatet” (Swedish for “School strike for climate”), which was the slogan on a sign she held during the weekly solo protests outside Sweden’s parliament that inspired similar actions by other young people.

She added that trademark protection is needed because her name and that of the movement “are constantly being used for commercial purposes without any consent whatsoever.”

“It happens, for instance, in marketing, selling of products and people collecting money in my and the movement’s name,” she wrote.

Oh, please. For all the protests about this not being about the money, it’s about the money. In the Instagram post (which I won’t be embedding, can never get those to work) we see

And third: together with my family I’m setting up a foundation. It’s already registered and existing, but it not is not yet up and running. This is strictly nonprofit of course and there are no interests in philanthropy. It is just something that is needed for handling money (book royalties, donations, prize money etc) in a completely transparent way. For instance, taxes have to be paid before we can give them away to specified purposes and charities. This takes a lot of time and work, and when the foundation is fully up and running I will tell you more.
The foundation’s aim will be to promote ecological, climatic and social sustainability as well as mental health.

Handling the money. Uh huh. Getting rich off scaring people and giving them “climate grief”. Is this the endgame she and her family and her enablers were aiming for, much like with Al Gore getting massively rich off duping idiots, or just them going “hey, we should get rich off Greta blowing off classes on Fridays”? How soon till St. Greta starts traveling around in big fossil fueled vehicles because she “needs the protection”? And many other climahypocrite things?

    from the article: “a move meant to protect the movement from misuse for commercial purposes”

    Sadly, that’s the way of the world today. tRump and his “family” trademark everything.

    tRump had a charity (remember?) and ran into a few “problems” of self-dealing. Would you prefer that Ms. Thunberg just pocket donations like the tRump “family” did with the inauguration money?

    We get it. The far-right and fuelists (pronounced foolists) hate Ms. Thunberg because she’s a she and she stands up to men like Donald J. A 17 year old girl with more impact than you guys. Get over it.

      This is about Bitchi Longstaocking’s greed, what does the Trump family have to do with it (I know, Orange Man Bad)?

      Another one of your paranoid delusions? Link?

      No, like any good Lefty, Daddy smells money. No such thing as a poor white Lefty, after all.

      What’s she going to trademark next, How Dare You?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Google “trump inaugural funds”

        She could attempt to trademark “How Dare You?” tRump trademarked Make America Great Again to protect his cap, bumpersticker and t-shirt businesses.

        Here are some of tRump’s trademarks.

          So?

          Trademarking your business labels is no crime.

          Bitchi Liongstocking is supposed to be in this to save the world, not make a buck.

    William Teach: Handling the money.

    Setting up a foundation and trademarking the names makes good sense. That makes sure the money donated for charitable purposes is not mixed with personal expenditures.

    • gitarcarver says:

      Setting up a foundation and trademarking the names makes good sense.

      Except you cannot trademark a name alone.

      If you want to trademark a name, it must be associated with a business of some type.

      All she is saying is that she wants to trademark the name from others using it in commercial ventures. There are already US laws on the books to prevent that without trademarking the name.

      It could be a EU thing which may have different regulations, but this move in the US is very strange.

      • Zachriel says:

        gitarcarver: Except you cannot trademark a name alone.

        She is establishing a foundation.

        gitarcarver: There are already US laws on the books to prevent that without trademarking the name.

        She’s Swedish, and her movement is international. She says others have been using her name for commercial purposes or to raise funds. A trademark gives her stronger rights.

        gitarcarver: this move in the US is very strange.

        Because no one in the U.S. bothers with trademarks because the laws already “prevent that without trademarking the name”.
