    The Ohio State University wants to trademark the word THE

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...-word-THE.html
    Ohio State University is attempting to trademark what many consider to be the most commonly used word in the English language: 'The.'

    The university wants the trademark the definite article to use on its school merchandise, the Columbus Dispatch reported. The trademark would cover items like T-shirts and hats, according to the application, which was filed on August 8.

    Established in 1870, the school officially changed its name to 'The Ohio State University' in 1878. Nowadays, at the beginning of NFL games, ex-Buckeyes football players often emphasize 'The' when identifying themselves as Ohio State alumni during starting lineup announcements.

    Similarly, former University of Miami players say they attended 'The U,' and the school has since trademarked 'It's All About The U' and its logo, which is a large letter 'U.'

    'Like other institutions, Ohio State works to vigorously protect the university's brand and trademarks,' University spokesman Chris Davey told The Columbus Dispatch in a statement.

    'These assets hold significant value, which benefits our students and faculty and the broader community by supporting our core academic mission of teaching and research.'
