You Cannot Register the OBAMA PAJAMAS Mark Without Presidential Consent

14 Dec

The TTAB affirmed the Examining Attorney’s refusal to register the marks OBAMA PAJAMAS, OBAMA BAHAMA PAJAMAS and BARACK'S JOCKS DRESS TO THE LEFT since the applicant failed to provide a written consent from President Barack Obama. 

Obviously, the TTAB did not buy the applicant's arguments that the mark did not have anything to do with the president.
