Fox Files Trademark for “OK Boomer”

So, Fox has filed a trademark for “Ok Boomer”. The television giant probably aims at developing a reality, comedy and/or game show called OK BOOMER.

Many others have also filed a trademark on the name. Kevin Yen, a New Yorker, also filed for a brand of clothing. A Pittsburgh-based company filed for a brand of stickers and decals. William Grundfest also claimed the name for a series of live stage performances about “generational differences.”

The chances however, of any of them getting the name from USPTO is slim considering the popularity of the name as it has become a “widely used message”.

Here is a look into domains related to the sought-after name:

The domain was first registered in 2007. It was expired after that until it was registered back again in 2015. The domain was yet again started in August, 2018. The interesting thing to note here is that it was in a pending delete status after it was recently expired. There are currently 25 bids on it at Surely other bids would be there as well. Moreover, there are 79 extensions with the term “OkBoomer” in it.

Now, Fox has filed a trademark for the term, indicating that they may be interested in using it for a new project or product. It remains to be seen how this trademark will be used, but it’s clear that the “OK Boomer” trend shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
