Anonymous in France released a short, video response on YouTube entitled «An Idea is Not for Sale» and called Early Flicker’s manager, Apollinaire Affret «unscrupulous.» In the video they went on to ask Aufrey to withdraw the trademark claims, adding, «If he doesn’t he will spark our anger.»
Apollinaire Auffret, who manages the Early Flicker T-shirt firm, drew the ire of Anonymous after he filed a trademark claim with France’s National Institute of Industrial Property to use the notorious group’s visual tags in various forms, including on clothing, bags or dishes.
The Anonymous logo features a suited figure with a question mark instead of a head and its slogan includes the warning: “We do not Forgive. We do not Forget.” Though the application was filed February 16, it was only made public this week in a story in the Parisien newspaper.
Immediately after, Anonymous posted a grainy video on YouTube in which a synthesised voice says Anonymous will attack Early Flicker’s online presence. “Their arrogance and ignorance of what they have done will not go unpunished,” intones the voice, as a masked person holds a statement. “Anonymous will take down any business they have going on the Internet.”
Auffret told AFP on Saturday that he had been in contact with someone from Anonymous and resolved the dispute by pledging to relinquish his claim to the logo and slogan. He added that his business’s websites had been attacked so he decided to take them down for now. Anonymous had pledged to continue attacking the T-shirt maker until its trademark registration had been revoked and a public apology issued.
Citizens of the world, We are Anonymous.
The Anonymous logo and motto has been highjacked and registered through the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI). A web agency called « Early Flicker » has registered the anonymous motto and logo and passed it on as there own. Now under french law the company owns the rights to the anonymous logo and slogan.
In a response the National Institute of Industrial Property said that “the conditions seem fulfilled since the mark is registered and it does not seem to have made use.” There arrogance and ignorance of what they have done will not go un punished. Anonymous will take down any business they have going on the internet and the ninety nine percent will not stop until the registration has been revoked and a public apology has been made.
