If the video below is to be believed, the brain trust over at pickapop.fr has trademarked the Anonymous logo. You know, the suit in front of the globe with the laurels and the question mark head? Yeah. That one.
Trademarked. As in, lifted my leg on the corner of it, now it's MINE. I think that was genius; I mean Anonymous is all about paying people to use words and images, because hey, intellectual property rights are the glue that holds our society together. Besides, finders keepers, losers weepers, right?

I was shocked, shocked I tell you, to discover retaliation had occurred in this matter. Apparently so was the guy who trademarked it. His complete response can be located here.
"I'm still within the scope of amazement at the madness that FOLLOWS today, but at least has the merit of demonstrating our responsiveness to threats against our freedom of expression."
Amazement? Madness? Pull your head out of your ass.
