The Ohio State University wants to trademark ‘The’
Buckeye fans know it isn’t just Ohio State, it is THE Ohio State University.
Now the university has filed a request to trademark the word “the.”
The application was filed on August 8. On the application, the university says it is for a brand of clothing.
According to Josh Gerben of trademark law firm Gerben Law Firm, Ohio State submitted designs for hats and shirts with ‘the’ as a sort of logo.
