Two questions: (1) Does this make Russell Brand a capitalist anti-capitalist or an anti-capitalist capitalist? (2) Why wasn’t the trademark denied on grounds of prior art? (The Ron Paul presidential campaign used an almost identical design.) >>>
He’s the self-styled revolutionary who backed Ed Miliband at the Election and advocates the overthrow of ‘corporate tyranny’.
But The Mail on Sunday can reveal Russell Brand is himself embracing capitalism, trademarking a logo using his own spelling of ‘revolution’.
With supreme irony, his company has reserved the right to use the logo, with backwards letters spelling ‘love’, on trinkets, stationery, wallets – even lingerie.
