obama bin laden

An enterprising soul by the name of Alexandre Batlle has applied for federal trademark registration for Obama Bin Laden, for use with hats, shirts, bumper stickers, and pins.

The USPTO Examining Attorney handling the case has refused registration on the basis of "scandalous matter," "false association," and "lack of consent of the individuals named in the mark." Mr. Batlle, of course, has an opportunity to argue against these various grounds of refusal, but there's no way he'll get anywhere with this.

Bravo for the entrepreneurial spirit, though.
