Submission + - Warner attempt to register "The Diggers" as TM (smh.com.au)

c0lo writes: The Australian federal government will object to entertainment giant Warner Music trademarking the term "The Diggers" along with an image of a soldier saluting.

This term had special significance in Australian military history in describing the people who served their country in the First World War.

The move has already sparked concern among veterans.
"No bloody way. If this trademark goes through `The diggers' cannot be used by even us without permission," one told AAP in an email.
