‘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.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
