Comic book publishers will frequently use Fifth Week Events to renew trademarks on character names. United States trademark law requires trademark holders to publish works using the trademark in order to renew it. As part of the Fifth Week Event, many characters who haven't recently held a regular series will have a one shot tie-in to the event with the character's name in the title alongside the name of the Fifth Week Event. For example, DC Comics's ''[[TangentComics Tangent]]'' event had comics such as ''Tangent: Doom Patrol'', ''Tangent: Metal Men'', ''Tangent: Power Girl'', and ''Tangent: Sea Devils''.
