Popular YouTubers Try To Trademark The Word 'React'

You know, I used to like these guys. Hell, we even posts links to their videos from time to time but this is just stupid. frown

You can’t trademark the word "react." Sure, the Fine Brothers have enjoyed lots of success and won millions of subscribers by posting videos of kids and old people reacting to all kinds of stuff. Now that they’ve gotten successful, they want to keep growing their empire and making more of that sweet YouTube money by franchising their recognized brand and format. But what the bros didn’t make terribly clear in their initial announcement was that they want to own the word "react" so other YouTubers making reaction videos couldn’t post videos with similar titles.
