[PARIS] The Frenchman who coined the #JeSuisCharlie slogan that was adopted globally in the wake of a jihadist attack on the Charlie Hebdo magazine, is trying to copyright the phrase to stop its commercialisation, his lawyer told AFP Thursday.

Graphic designer Joachim Roncin, 39 "will rely on his copyright to try and control the use of the slogan and keep the initial message intact," said his lawyer Myriam Sebban.
