SOCIAL MEDIA/TRUMP BUSINESS: “Former President Donald Trump has run into a significant setback with trademarking the name for his social media platform, Truth Social.

According to a filing released this month and tweeted by Josh Gerben, a trademark lawyer, Trump’s social media app had its application refused by the US Patent and Trademark Office because its name bore too much resemblance to the names of other business entities.”
