A NEW application by Oxford University to trademark the word ‘Oxford’ on more than a hundred products from stickers and pencils to DVDs and even bibles has sparked concern. Maps, tickets, newspapers, journals and 122 other goods could potentially be left with a bill for using the word ‘Oxford’ in the wrong way if the application is approved. The bid for exclusive use of the city’s name has been made by Oxford University Press, a division of the university, and unless there is formal opposition is likely to become active within three months.
