Sarah Palin’s name: denied, then accepted

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin finally managed to trademark her name and that of her daughter Bristol Palin in 2011. The trademark covers “educational and entertainment services, namely, providing motivational speaking services in the field of politics, culture, business and values,” as well as “information about political elections” and “a website featuring information about political issues.”

The final approval must have been a relief for Palin, who had her previous attempts to copyright her own name rejected because she did not sign her own name on the copyright form!
