While Beyonce has been dodging rumors of lip synching the National Anthem at Obama's inauguration, she and Jay-Z have furthered their process of trademarking their daughter Blue Ivy's name. On Tuesday, the US Patent and Trademark Office posted notice that the couple's application to trademark "Blue Ivy" showed no opposition.

Now, Beyonce and Jay-Z have to prove within the next three years that they are using the patent in some product, which could be very interesting.
