Rospatent (the Russian Federal Agency for Intellectual Property, Patents and Trademarks) has received several applications for registration as a trademark the words of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev addressed to the Crimean pensioners.
A lawyer from St. Petersburg Viktor Pasternak applied Rospatent for “You Hold on Here” trademark registration. The lawyer considers he will be able to sell this trademark to a bank or a foodservice company.
Moscow “Ipex Group” is also applied for a patent, but it has already modified the phrase: “No money, but you have to hold on”.
As a reminder, one of the pensioners started loudly complaining Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev during his visit to Crimea about her pension of eight thousand rubles was not enough to survive. Medvedev replied that there was no money to increase pensions, and wished the Crimean pensioners to hold on, as well as health and good mood.
