Banksy blocked from trademark rights over some of his most famous works

Banksy can no longer claim legal rights to his artwork, experts say after he was stripped of two more trademarks for some of his most famous graffiti.

The two latest rulings against the anonymous multi-millionaire street artists means he has now lost rights to four of his works…

Full Colour Black, a British greeting cards company which recreates his works for sale, has successfully persuaded the EU to cancel trademarks he obtained three years ago for the Radar Rat and Girl with an Umbrella, the Telegraph can reveal…

Banksy’s lawyers argued unsuccessfully that “an anti-establishment viewpoint does not prevent a party from utilising establishment mechanisms to further their view”.

Anyone surprised that British courts ruled in favor of corporate thieves?

Thanks, Honeyman
