OSU wants to trademark "The"

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.   Thomas Jefferson

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.   George Orwell

If you ever find yourself in need of a safe space then you’re probably going to have to stop calling yourself a social justice warrior. You cannot be a warrior and a pansy at the same time.   Mike Adams

Can I trademark a vowel?  I would go for the letter E and sue the pants of them for patent infringement

"The University of South Carolina" did this decades ago.

For some reason, they decided not to trademark "The Gamechickens."

So shouldn't they be trademarking TOSU for the bumper stickers?  Or would that be tOSU?

My alma mater continues to sink to new lows in stupidity.  I personally refuse to put 'the' in front of the school name.
