Ohio State has finally received some good news on the trademark front after a nearly 3-year long battle.

In the fall of 2019, Ohio State had officially submitted a trademark request for use of the word “THE” on clothing and merchandise. That request was initially denied for a number of reasons.

According to trademark attorney Josh Gerben, the initial request of Ohio State was denied due to a ruling that stated the trademark was ornamental and that the clothing company Marc Jacobs had previously filed a trademark request for use of “THE.”

Quite a win for the Buckeyes.
