‘Anna Chapman’ Trademark

Russian spy Anna Chapman has registered her name as a trademark to cash in on her growing popularity since she was deported in a Cold War-style swap last year, the state patent agency said Tuesday.

“Maybe she wants to open the ‘Anna Chapman’ dry cleaner or make cookies,” agency official Nikolai Kravtsov said, adding that she had registered for the trademark in August.

Chapman asked to register her name as a trademark for eight lines of merchandise, including vodka, clothing and watches, Komsomolskaya Pravda reported, saying the trademark would last until 2020.
