Climate advocate Greta Thunberg has said she has applied to trademark her name.

The move would mean it is illegal to use her name which is not in line with her values.

She has also sought to trademark the Fridays For Future movement she founded in 2018.

“I assure you, I and the other school strikers have absolutely no interests in trademarks. But unfortunately it needs to be done,” she said on Instagram on Wednesday.

Thunberg said she had also applied to trademark Skolstrejk for klimatet (school strike for the climate in Swedish) – the wording on the placard she has held since she started her protest outside the Swedish parliament in 2018.

Her name and the #FridaysForFuture movement are constantly being used for commercial purposes without any consent whatsoever.
