My first reaction to Jay-Z and Beyonce trademarking their sprog's name was to give a massive eyeroll, but after my finger wagging a few posts ago, I realize that's probably the same thing.

I'm sure there are LOADS of shitasses who would otherwise be starting websites and whatnot with that poor kid's name, to try and capitalize on it.

I'm surprised it took him this long to copyright it.

But he's "following in the footsteps of Jedward", so it must be a brilliant move, clearly.

Wasn't there a band called Bono Must Die a couple years ago? I think they were from Ireland and I may have seen an article saying something about Bono objecting to them using his name.

I think they were called Bono Must Diet, and he was righteously pissed. I bet that band is first on his take-down list with his team of new trademark lawyers.

Does this mean we have to pay Paul McGuinness a quarter every time we say his name? Jesus. I guess Laz was ahead of his time all along with "Boner."

We'll just start pronouncing it like Sonny Bono. Loophole!

Any article referring to Bono following in the footsteps of Jedward instantly loses all credibility.

When I was in Ireland last year, I got a gas station receipt that had Jedward printed on the back of it.

The gas station attendant was mortified when I pointed it out and laughed. I took a picture of it as a "WTF IRELAND" moment.

He's too late. He should have done it sooner.
