Ohio State University granted trademark for ‘THE’ on merchandise

Ohio State University was granted a trademark to use the word "THE" on apparel and merchandise to promote its athletic teams.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office had previously rejected Ohio State's application, claiming the trademark appeared to be for a "merely decorative manner" and as an "ornamental feature" that didn't function as a trademark that would differentiate the items from others, the Associated Press reported.

The USPTO did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment on the approval.
