Turks Want To Trademark IDAHO

Believe it or not, an ag group in Turkey has applied to the Turkish Patent Institute to trademark the word “IDAHO” for its agricultural, plant and animal products – and the Idaho Potato Commission doesn’t take too kindly to that idea. Neither did the Senate Agriculture Committee, which this morning not only introduced a resolution proposed by the Potato Commission, but put it on a fast track to the full Senate, which is scheduled to suspend its rules and take up the measure this morning/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Can you think of any greater threat to the peace and prosperity of the great state of IDAHO than for a Turkish ag group desiring to trademark the name IDAHO?
