3 companies apply to trademark 'fake news'; CNN Money, 2/10/17

Heather Long, CNN Money; 

3 companies apply to trademark 'fake news'

"Three U.S. companies are trying to trademark the term "fake news." One of the applications is from the animation team behind "The Simpsons." Another is from the group behind the popular game Cards Against Humanity.

These companies applied for a trademark to U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on January 12, the day after the press conference when then President-elect Donald Trump called CNN "fake news" (a claim CNN debunked)."
