In a move that seems like a spectacularly poor idea, French T-shirt manufacturer Early Flicker has registered a trademark on Anonymous' iconic logo and slogan.
It requests a trademark both on the logo shown above and Anonymous' battle-cry:
We are legion
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Anonymous is certainly no shrinking violet when it comes to what it perceives as "justice". Its members are not taking kindly to someone trying to prohibit the free use of its materials, as evidenced by the video below.
"Their arrogance and ignorance of what they have done will not go unpunished. Anonymous will take down any business they have going on the internet, and the 99 per cent will not stop until the registration has been revoked and a public apology has been made. The name of Anonymous will not be the whore of the world," Anonymous declared. We expect denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks to follow.
Pass that popcorn, would you, @Asher_Wolf?
