STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- "Happy Valley" is now the sole property of Penn State.

The U.S. Patent Office granted the university's application to trademark the term on Wednesday.

The university can now use the moniker on clothes and sue for infringement of the trademark.

According to the Centre Daily Times, Penn State does not plan to charge local companies who already have "Happy Valley" on apparel.
