Want to annoy Ohio State. Before the get their trademark, make products with "the" on them and cross the "the" out with a blue x similar to University of Michigan's blue. During Michigan week any m's on any signs on campus are crossed out with a scarlet x. You could even add "no trademark".

Well, I think that it has been only in the last ten years that they add the to The Ohio State University before that it was just Ohio State University. However, they started their trademark everything and protect it diligently in the 70s. They started by stoppng senior citizens from using the scarlet and gray color combination on the items they made to sell at the Columbus Recreation Department's Golden Hobby Shop.

As far as research, they have found a way to make that profitable. It used to be that professors had to publish. Now they have to get research grants and do research and the university takes a chunk of the research grant because the professor is using university faciities to do the research. Around 2008, the Dean of the College of Art told me that OSU was a research university not a teaching university????
