This Post Brought To You By Occupy Wall StreetTM

Citing the potential of “Occupy Wall Street” to become a “global brand,” a Long Island couple has filed to trademark the name of the amorphous organization responsible for the protests and encampments in lower Manhattan and other U.S. cities…In a U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) application, Robert and Diane Maresca are seeking to trademark the phrase “Occupy Wall St.” so that they can place it on a wide variety of goods, including bumper stickers, shirts, beach bags, footwear, umbrellas, and hobo bags.

    Making money off of people who are protesting people making money is the NKI.

    If winter weather doesn't put an end to the protests, suing those hippies for patent infringement will!

    The revolution will not go better with Coke.
    The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath.
    The revolution will put you in the driver's seat.

    The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised,
    will not be televised, will not be televised.
    The revolution will be no re-run brothers;
    The revolution will be live.

    Chump change compared to the $500k floating around in OWS accounts. There are a number of places that that money could end up, but going to benefit the folks down at Zuccotti Park is probably not on the list.

    LegalZoom is not a law firm, and the employees of LegalZoom are not acting as your attorney. LegalZoom's legal document service is not a substitute for the advice of an attorney.

    Cluster bombs are more humane. Two CBU-75s dropped in one pass over Zuccotti park should clean the park of slime.

    A more subtle way is to spring for a whole bunch of free veggie pizzas and spray dissolved sales of cadmium and chromium(VI) on the pizza. In 4-6 weeks they'll start succumbing to kidney and liver failure and have to leave the park, then those who survive will develop cancer and be gone by the end of next year.

    Tasteless, cheap, and invisible when spritzed on free veggie pizza or in any of their serving line dishes.

    Buy from Sigma-Aldrich under an arms-length incorporated biopharma name and rent a mail drop or PO Box. Cheap and unregulated. Very effective. Untraceable.
