<nettime> Who owns Tito?


Name, image and works of last and only Yugoslav paramount leader, Josip
Broz Tito, while despised for some time, are back in fashion.  In
Croatia there is wine and water carrying his name. In Bosnia there are
'passports' issued with his face on them.

That all lead Tito's grandchildren to consider patenting and trade-
marking their famous grandpa, to prevent his name being used to sell
just about anything.
