The definite article: Ohio State seeks trademark on 'The' for university merchandise https://t.co/vI5WfqivyB

From the article
Snip-"The university had Urban Meyer’s name trademarked in 2015. Ohio State also secured a trademark designation for Woody Hayes in 2016.

In obtaining the trademark for Hayes, the university stipulated that royalties from sales would be designated for a scholarship fund.

There have been disputes over trademarks in the past. In February 2017, Ohio State requested to trademark the acronym OSU on clothing and apparel.

Oklahoma State University, which also goes by the acronym OSU, objected. Eventually, the two schools signed an agreement that allowed both schools to use the acronym on a national basis."
