Banksy defends its copyright

In London, for two weeks, a pop-up created by Banksy named Gross Domestic Product where access is absolutely forbidden is open.
All the products in store can be purchased on the website and the proceeds will be used to purchase a new rescue ship for migrants.
The store was created to resolve a legal dispute over copyright, in fact a company that produces greeting cards is taking advantage of Banksy's commercial absence to appropriate his trademark.
The legislation provides that the failure to use a brand for commercial purposes for a certain period of time may cause the detection and use by other companies.
Banksy therefore decided to use the rights to his name in order to defend and maintain his trademark.
The company defends itself by declaring that it is not willing to take over the Banksy trademark, but for many years it has been trying unsuccessfully to get in touch with the author with the proposal to pay royalties to be able to use his graffiti freely.
