London, Feb 8 (ANI): Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin's application to trademark her name has been rejected by US officials.
The 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate filed paperwork with the US Patent and Trademark Office in November, reports Sky News.
However, it emerged over the weekend that the application to register her name for "motivational speaking services" has been turned down.
According to official records the bid, filed by her lawyer, was rejected on the grounds that she failed to personally sign the application.
The records also show that two examples she had given supporting her application were 'not acceptable'. (ANI)
