Ohio State Denied “The” Trademark


(WOWK) — O-H … N- O … are the words Ohio State heard on Wednesday, as their request to trademark the word “the” was denied.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark office turned down the University’s request to trademark “the” when used as part of the school’s name on University merchandise.

OSU submitted the trademark application last month.
