Will Assange trademark his name?

WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange applied for a trademark to his name on Feb. 14, according to the Guardian. His trademark request is to “protect his name for use in ‘public speaking services’ and ‘entertainment services.'”

If Assange is given the trademark, he “will own the trademark to his name for the purposes of ‘news reporter services’, ‘journalism’, ‘publication of texts other than publicity texts’ and ‘education services.'”
