Does it get any better/ worse than this?

The Smoking Gun reports:

Fearful of a dilution of his powerful brand, Donald Trump is fighting his ex-wife Ivana’s bid to trademark [register as a trademark] her name for use in the real estate business. U.S. Patent and Trademark Office records show that Trump recently lodged a formal opposition to his former wife’s application to trademark [register] the term “Ivana Trump.”

“Trademark Guy” Owen Smigelski has more.  (Pardon me for refusing to permit the use of the word “trademark” as a verb.  I’m a kind of trademark guy, too, I guess!)

UPDATE:  More from Owen.

    I like to see another Canute standing up for the correct use of the language!

      Yes, but Canute knew it was hopeless. I’m still in denial. (No “in de Nile” jokes, folks.)
