Jeb Bush loses the copyright to 'Jeb!'
Posted 12/28/15 , edited 12/28/15
It's a sad day indeed for exclamation mark proponents — Jeb Bush is apparently dropping the high-energy punctuation mark from his brand.

According to Mother Jones, Bush trademarked "Jeb!" last winter under the name of BHAG LLC. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office accepted the submission for the trademark, and asked for more information, as they are wont to do:

But according to that office, on November 9, Bush's application was officially abandoned. Technically, Bush has until January 9 to restart the process, but for now the name is un-trademarked and open for anyone else to try to grab.

According to the original application, Bush wanted the name reserved for use on leather key chains, stadium cushions, stemware, stuffed toys, hair bands, and other cool stuff. In April, the USPTO asked BHAG to provide, within six months, written consent from Bush himself to use his name. Bush never responded. So the USPTO issued an abandonment notice regarding the trademark request.

So he lost the Jeb! name around the time he stopped being Jeb! in November? Makes sense. He hasn't been Jeb! since then. Lately he's just been Jeb...
