Grant Media Tries To Trademark Casey Anthony's Name; Fails

Casey Anthony was acquitted of murdering her daughter, Caylee, on July 5, 2001 and was released from jail on July 17th, but that didn’t stop a media company from trying to profit off of her name.

The company, Grant Media, filed an application with the U.S. Trademark office in order to lock down the rights to Casey’s name. Unfortunately for them, their application was denied.

TMZ reports:

But the Trademark office put a big, fat REJECTION on the application — claiming the company could not prove they have ANY connection with Casey Anthony at all.

According to docs obtained by TMZ, the Trademark office explains, “[Anthony] is not connected with the services sold by the applicant under the mark. Moreover, due to her fame, purchasers would presume a connection between Casey Anthony and the entertainment services.”

Sources close to Casey confirm … Anthony has NO connection to Grant Media … and her lawyers are ready to take action against ANYONE who attempts to profit off of her name.

Let’s hope no one tries to make a profit off of her “fame” or infamy, not even her.
