His opponent at the Trademark Office was a reality TV star who registered first and claimed she had introduced him to the title of a proposed show. She still lost.

While not scripture of ecclesiastic precept, the United States Patent and Trademark Office has declared Tyler Perry to be the winner in a battle over “What Would Jesus Do.”

The other contestant in this bout was Kimberly Kearney, who was once known as “Poprah” on the VH-1 series, I Want to Work for Diddy.

In May 2008, Perry registered the mark in the category of entertainment services, mentioning in his filing, live concerts, a TV program and motion pictures. He included a disclaimer that he wasn’t attempting ownership on the exclusive right to use “Jesus” apart from “What Would Jesus Do.”
