Last week, Greta Thunberg announced that she was going to register her name as a trademark. The climate change activist will also register the name of the Fridays For Future movement.
After the trademarks are registered, Greta and her colleagues will be able to take legal actions against those who use the names “not in line with values of her movement”, the Guardian writes.
The activist made a post on the Instagram on Wednesday and told her followers that she was not interested in trademarks and did not have any commercial interest but noticed that her name was frequently used for commercial purposes against her will.
Miss Thunberg has also applied for the “Skolstrejk for klimatet” trademark trying to protect interests of her school strikes in Sweden.
Greta Thunberg is an teenage environmental activist that gained international recognition. She became popular after her schools strikes and after her speeches addressed to politicians. She was chosen as the person of the year by the Time magazine and was also nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.
