Carving a name for herself and seeking to protect that name from imposters, and for book sales where she may earn royalites from the till. Greta may want to note that copyright protection on books and artworks is more valuable and a lot less costly than trademarks.



In an interesting turn of of events Swedish activist Greta Thunberg has (allegedly) applied to register the following as trademarks:


1. Her name - Greta Thunberg

2. FFF Fridays For Future

3. Skolstrejk For Klimatet


It's an interesting situation as a persons name cannot normally be registered as a trade mark, neither can names descriptive of the goods, which clearly, the school strikes on Fridays are.


Equally, book titles cannot normally be registered as a trademark. Hence, we'll be following the exploits of of Ms Thunberg as she attempts to create caselaw precedents, that we feel will be worth examining as closely as the trademark examiners who will no doubt be processing her applications in strict accordance with the rules or registration - no doubt - or else Human Rights Article 14 discrimination creeps into the frame.


Generally, names that are in regular use and part of ordinary prose in newspapers and the media, cannot be registered as trademarks without so many disclaimers as to make the unenforceable.


That would give all of us the right to register our names for whatever activities we were involved in to prevent passing off. 


Bob - the builder

Smith - the blacksmith

White - the emulsion painter

Moore - the investors accountant

Sterling - the tax collector

Right - the human rights lawyer

Armstrong - the string arm wrestler

Rock - the stonemason


Whereas the laws of libel and slander, would give her protection against being bad-mouthed and misquoted, except for genuine comment with obvious humour intended, such as political cartoons.


And the fraud acts various would protect her against impersonation with the intention to cause loss, or make a financial gain.


If she succeeds, we might consider making an application for "Change Climate"!



Greta Thunberg at the United Nations in Katowice, Poland 2018


Greta was 15 years old when she started striking and insisting that her so-called guardians might do something positive. Although she gave it her best shot, along with millions more schoolchildren around the world, the politicians and industrialists would not listen to reason. Climate deniers are likely to be responsible for the mass murder of seven billion people, in a climopic genocide built on a financial eugenics programme to make billions of dollars exploiting planet earth at the expense of the human population.



Greta Thunberg is a Swedish climate activist known for having initiated the school strike for climate movement that formed in November 2018 and surged globally after the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP24) in December the same year.


Her activism began in August 2018, when her recurring and solitary Skolstrejk för klimatet ("School strike for the climate") protesting outside the Swedish parliament in Stockholm began attracting media coverage.


The school strikes for climate, also known variously as Fridays for Future (FFF), Youth for Climate, Climate Strike or Youth Strike for Climate, became an international movement of school students who take time off from class on Fridays to participate in demonstrations to demand action from political leaders to take action to prevent climate change and for the fossil fuel industry to transition to renewable energy.

Publicity and widespread organising began after Swedish schoolgirl Greta Thunberg staged a protest in August 2018 outside the Swedish Riksdag (parliament), holding a sign that read "Skolstrejk för klimatet" ("School strike for climate").




HOW MUCH IS THE EARTH HEATING UP - As of early 2017, the Earth had warmed by roughly 2 degrees Fahrenheit (more than 1 degree Celsius) since 1880, when records began at a global scale. The number may sound low, but as an average over the surface of an entire planet, it is actually high, which explains why much of the world’s land ice is starting to melt and the oceans are rising at an accelerating pace. If greenhouse gas emissions continue unchecked, scientists say, the global warming could ultimately exceed 8 degrees Fahrenheit, which would undermine the planet’s capacity to support a large human population.



BBC NEWS JANUARY 2020 - Greta Thunberg to trademark 'Fridays for Future'

Climate change activist Greta Thunberg says she is trademarking her name and the #FridaysForFuture movement to stop people from impersonating her.


In 2018, Ms Thunberg's school strike grew into a global movement that became known as #FridaysForFuture. 


Millions of people in countries such as Australia, Ghana, Germany and the UK have taken part in the protests. 


She said on Instagram that people had tried to sell products and collect money in the movement's name. 


"My name and the #Fridaysforfuture movement are constantly being used for commercial purposes without any consent whatsoever," the 17 year old said. 

Ms Thunberg has also applied to trademark Skolstrejk för klimatet (school strike for climate), the phrase used on her protest sign that she has carried around the world to #FridaysForFuture protests. 





She added that people had tried to impersonate her "in order to communicate with high profile people, politicians, media and artists". 

Ms Thunberg also announced she has set up a non-profit foundation to handle the financial side of #FridaysForFuture. 


It will manage money raised from donations and book royalties. 


"The foundation's aim will be to promote ecological, climatic and social sustainability as well as mental health," she told her Instagram followers. 

Ms Thunberg has become a strong voice for action on climate change. However, her message on tackling rising temperatures has not been well received by everyone. 


Earlier this month US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told the teenager to go away and study economics before lecturing investors. 


Last December she was named Time Magazine's Person of the Year. 






DW 29 JANUARY 2020 - Greta Thunberg seeks to trademark her name and movement

The 17-year-old climate activist said the trademark was meant "to protect the movement" from being used for commercial purposes. Thunberg has also set up a foundation to be transparent about the movement's financing.

Climate activist Greta Thunberg is seeking to trademark her name and the Fridays for Future campaign in a move meant "to protect the movement and its activities," she wrote on Instagram on Wednesday.

In her post on the photo sharing platform, Thunberg said she and her fellow school strikers have "absolutely no interests in trademarks, but unfortunately it needs to be done."

The trademarks would cover the 17-year-old Swede's name, as well as the name of the "Fridays for Future" movement and 'Skolstrejk för klimatet' (which translates as "School strike for the climate" in Swedish), the slogan on a sign she held during her weekly solo climate protests outside of Sweden's parliament which inspired similar protests by other activists.

The climate activist said the trademark was 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.

"Fridays For Future is a global movement founded by me. It belongs to anyone taking part in it, above all the young people. It can — and must — not be used for individual or commercial purposes," she added.


Thunberg also announced that she and her family were setting up a foundation "for handling money (book royalties, donations, prize money etc.) in a completely transparent way."

Thunberg was named Time Magazine's Person of the Year in 2019 for her climate activism. Earlier this month she attended the World Economic Forum in Davos, where she and her fellow activists urged world leaders and politicians to listen to climate activists and to take action on global warming.





GRETA THUNBERG - is a Swedish climate activist. At the COP24 climate talks in Poland, December 2018, Miss Thunberg addressed the Secretary-General of the United Nations. She received a standing ovation for one of her talks. She is behind the global school strike created to call attention to climate change. She is a rebel. With a cause. Miss Thunberg is 15 and autistic and the newest, youngest and most powerful voice on the world stage demanding the world address global warming.

Greta Thunberg wants to see her name in trademarked lights


DISCLAIMER  - For the avoidance of doubt, the Climate Change Trust is not in contact with Ms Thunberg, does not have her address, and would not give out that information without her express permission in any event. The Trust does not represent her in any way. We are though sympathetic to her causes and follow her progress as she may affect policy on climate change, even where she does not propose solutions, just calls for action, such calls are important reminders for world leaders that they are not doing enough to combat global warming. The Trust avers that it has the right to report on media articles, receive and impart information as per Articles 9 and 10 of the European Convention of Human Rights, and other articles enshrined in international law under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Where registered, trademarks will be respected, but this does not prevent legitimate comment on media events and articles, as per the Freedom of the Press. The public have a right to know. We are advocates of fair and balanced reporting.
