TV Personality Dr. Oz Files for Multiple Trademark Registrations Involving Metaverse

Feb. 11 - Dr. Mehmet C. Oz, a heart surgeon, television personality and U.S. Senate candidate, has applied to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to register trademarks covering a wide range of digital products, services and software. Dr. Oz's trademark registration application for virtual goods and services covers the fields of art, coin collecting, food, beverages, pajamas, eyewear, jewelry, cologne, beauty products, health products, fitness and exercise equipment, bedding, toys, games, comic phones, posters and kitchen appliances, indicating that the Turkish-American television host may be interested in occupying a broad market in the metaverse. Dr. Oz's trademark application also covers community forums and information streams about health, wellness and lifestyle for use in the virtual world, a continuation of an industry Oz tells about on The Dr. Oz Show, which he hosts.
