Miner and wannabe prime minister Clive Palmer might now be preparing to take on media mogul Rupert Murdoch, owner of the newspaper he is suing.
Mr Palmer has lodged a trade mark for The Australian Times.
The application suggests the publication might include online and print versions, real estate advertising and even broadcasting services.
Palmer has recently clashed with reporters from The Australian newspaper.
In June, he barred a reporter from national broadsheet from a Palmer United Party media event in Adelaide, describing the newspaper as "just a rag".
Mr Palmer's lawyers recently launched Queensland Supreme Court defamation proceedings against the News Ltd newspaper and two of its journalists.
