Sarah Palin will soon have her name trademarked, according to U.S. News & World Report.

An Alaska lawyer submitted applications to the United States Patent and Trademark Office last year to trademark the former governor's name, along with that of her daughter Bristol Palin.

For Sarah Palin's application, there are two classes of commercial service for which her name would be a registered trademark. One is for "information about political elections" and "providing a website featuring information about political issues." The second is for "educational and entertainment services ... providing motivational speaking services in the field of politics, culture, business and values."

The "Bristol Palin" application is for "educational and entertainment services, namely, providing motivational speaking services in the field of life choices."

Reuters reported earlier this year on a hiccup in Palin's trademark attempt. The former governor and her daughter had neglected to sign the forms submitted to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, temporarily delaying the process.

According to U.S. News & World Report, there have been no challenges made to Palin or her daughter's applications and the deadline to do so for each respective filing has passed. Sarah and Bristol Palin can reportedly expect to receive their trademarks within three months.
