Banksy opens shop

Street artist Banksy has launched a homewares shop in a dispute over a trademark, stating he had been forced into taking the unusual step of opening his own homewares store following a legal dispute with a greetings card company.

Gross Domestic Product mysteriously opened in Croydon on Tuesday on the site of a former carpet shop. It will trade for the next two weeks – though will never open its doors, with all sales being made online.

“A greetings card company is contesting the trademark I hold to my art,” he said in a statement.

Banksy is now in the difficult position that his trademark may be cancelled due to non-use. So now, in an attempt to save the trademark registration, Banksy opened shop.
