BBC: Nuns seek Mother Teresa copyright [09-Jul-03]
The order of nuns founded by Mother Teresa has applied for copyright to her name in an attempt to stop its exploitation by commercial interests.
As in so many other matters, where Elvis leads, Mother Teresa follows. I'm sure this has absolutely nothing to do with trying to corner the lucrative "Saint Teresa" market, no siree, Bob.
Apparently, after the precident has been set, the pope plans to copyright the name "John Paul", then demand a retrospective share of the Beatles' profits.
