Registration of Obama bin Laden mark denied

The AP discussed the rejection of the proposed Obama bin Laden trademark:

"The examining attorney refuses registration because the mark consists of or comprises matter which may falsely suggest a connection with the individuals Osama bin Laden and Barack Obama," Karen Bush wrote in a Feb. 6 application response.

Batlle, who paid $325 for the application, continues to sell T-shirts and mugs with the name "Obama bin Laden" on his Web site. He's expecting sales to pick up if Obama wins the 2008 presidential election.
