Sarah Palin to trademark her name for family branding. Sarah Palin plans to trademark her own name with Bristol, but there could be problems. It appears neither application has actually been signed by either women.
Palin, whose application covers both politics and educational/entertainment purposes, also needs to provide an example of how her name has been used commercially, such as an sign or brochure showing the name being used to sell or advertise services.
Apparently, the politician has tried to submit her Facebook page and a Fox News story about her joining the network. However, those were deemed insufficient. Bristol’s application covers only educational/entertainment purposes such as motivational speaking “in the field of life choices”.
Sarah was the youngest person and the first woman elected Governor of Alaska. In August 2008, she was chosen by Republican Party presidential candidate John McCain to be his running mate in that year’s presidential election. She was the first Alaskan on the national ticket of a major party, as well as the first female vice-presidential nominee of the Republican Party. Speculation that she would run for U.S. president in 2012 began when it appeared the 2008 McCain-Palin ticket was going to be defeated.
