‘Hacktivist’ Copyright

On Wednesday, July 24, TechDirt.com raised a concern regarding the trademarking and copyrighting of the term “hacktivist,” which is also the title of Archaia’s upcoming original graphic novel, created by Alyssa Milano.

What follows is Archaia’s response to this concern:

“Archaia and Ms. Milano do claim trademark and copyright protection, as appropriate, for the book, the title, the characters, and content included of The Hacktivist. However, no claim is made to other uses of the term ‘hacktivist.’ In accord with Ms. Milano’s wishes, we support the attention to the issues of philanthropy and activism.”
