Blog trademark filed

Marble Sportswear of Beverly Hills, California recently applied for a trademark and service mark for the word “blog.” Is there a new line of blog-specific clothing on the way or are they just squatting?

Small Business Blog is also an applied service mark the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council and their “virtual destination where small business owners and entrepreneurs can communicate about issues impacting their enterprises and the economy.”

Both trademarks seem pointless but maybe pushing the government papers really does pay off.
