The Obama Trade-mark Surge

It was announced last night that Barack Obama will become the next US President. Entrepreneurial Americans across the nation are taking the opportunity to file trade-mark applications inspired by the President-elect. Here are a few of the more interesting ones filed in the USPTO in the last year:

  • BROCCOLI OBAMA – filed for “A vegetable recipe”
  • OBAMALLAMA – for plush and stuffed toys and political memorabilia
  • WHO’S YO’BAMA NOW? – for athletic apparel, namely, shirts, pants, jackets, footwear, hats and caps, athletic uniforms; Button-front aloha shirts
  • THE REAL OBAMA GIRL  – for audio and video recordings; digital music downloadable from the Internet
  • OBAMA BABY – for customized imprinting of company names and logos on promotional merchandise, apparel and corporate gifts
  • OBAMANOS! – for imprinting messages on wearing apparel, accessories and mugs
  • IRISH FOR O’BAMA – Bumper stickers
  • OBAMANATION – for yoga/exercise pants, loungewear and scarves
  • O.B.A.M.A. OUR BEST ANSWER FOR MANAGING AMERICA – for T-Shirts, Sweaters, and Hats.

And my personal favourite:

  • BEARAK OBAMA – for teddy bears

Now if only Canadian politicians inspired such branding activity.
