From the campaign website...

"This very well known British phrase now trademarked!

On the 25th March 2011, Mark Coop of 'Keep Calm and Carry On LTD' registered a trademark of the very well known phrase "KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON" in an attempt to take control of the very British and now very famous, nostalgia invoking, wartime poster.

The trademark has angered Barter Books (who discovered the poster), (owner of an original poster) and Kerry Cade from Simply Printing 4U whose business was greatly affected by the trademark. The move by Mark Coop is driven purely by greed and is far from the spirit of the wartime poster. We cannot not let this happen and we aim to reverse this. We need your help!"

If you agree, please visit  and ad to the petition. Feel free to leave comments about how this fiasco makes you feel...

On a personal note, and as a graphic artist who has benefited from this particular poster, in so many ways, I would also like to point out that the protection i am "granted" from this Trademark, through having traded the poster and other items prior to the application date of the mark, which was Oct 8th 2010, i have found it almost impossible to enforce this protection as we live in such a litigious, and paranoid, society that on-line stores, and related businesses run a mile when there is even a threat of legal implication in matters of IT.

Clearly this whole matter is nonsense, and so we need to show the EU that they can't grant trademarks willy nilly like this, or else where will it end? Happy Birthday? Merry Christmas?

Please leave comments, preferably on the campaign site...


Scrabblicious's Profile Picture
United Kingdom
My deviations stem from a passion for two things, words and the sea. No i'm not some gnarly old sea dog who used to read a lot on long voyages, but i was born near the sea and i tend to like being near the sea. Seaglass feeds this passion even more, and just learning how the glass has been made, discarded, broken, shaped and thrown back as a recycled work of art is fascinating.
I also have a passion for words, an aspiring writer, lover of words and word games, i was naturally drawn to the love of vintage wooden scrabble tiles, so many different types, colours and fonts used. They make for excellent photographic subjects, as do the seaglass beads.
My partner runs Seaglass shops on Etsy and Folksy under the name Peblsrock, and i'm on Zazzle and have a Folksy folder in her shop called Scrabblicious.
Both of us are happy to make items to order, and i can make variations of the photos seen here to order as well, just tell me the name, word, colour etc. and i'll do my best.

I don't know if this is one of your pictures, but it certainly looks like it. If it is, I hope this person has your permission. I see she is also in England, so maybe you're collaborating...? [link]

Hope that's what it is...
