It sounded like another dumb-fool thing the Palin’s would do.
It’s now almost official that Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol Palin will have their names trademarked.
Nobody challenged Sarah Palin’s trademark application by the deadline last Friday.
Bristol Palin’s went unchallenged by the June 10th deadline for her.
Each should receive their trademark within three months, says the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
All of this is a bit of a surprise considering the attention they draw from all sides.
According to both applications, the Palin’s wanted to make sure that only they could use their names, especially in political circles.
According to Sarah Palin’s application, she wants to protect her name, or “mark,” for business and advertising purposes, political elections, entertainment services and for “providing motivational speaking services in the field of politics.”
Bristol Palin’s is focused on “providing motivational speaking services in the field of life choices.”
Does this mean we have to put ™ after their name each time we use it?
Who knows, but that ain’t happening in the blog-o-sphere, we promise.
This is their second time applying to trademark their name.
The first time, they forgot to sign the application.
How come we’re not surprised?
