Long Island Couple Tries to Trademark Occupy Wall Street

OccupyWallStreet – A Long Island couple is trying to trademark “Occupy Wall Street” for use on merchandise. Come on, hippies, you’re wasting a perfectly good brand with all this protesting stuff.

Diane Maresca filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on October 18, 2011 and paid a fee of $975.

“I’m no marketing genius, but when you got something that’s across 50 states, it’s a brand now,” said Diane’s 44-year-old husband, Robert Maresca of West Islip, New York.

“I’m the best person they could imagine buying the slogan, because no one has their interest more than myself,” he said. “This is an important slogan; somebody else might have gotten a hold of it.”

“I’m also really against corporate money distorting elections,” he said.

“I think they are taking what is meant to represent 99% of America and instead making it represent an individual,” he said.

While Maresca said it was too soon to make any promises, “it is my hope to transfer ownership of the trademark to OWS if it’s feasible.”

He said he would even sell the trademark to Occupy Wall Street members, if they wanted it, for just $1 — after they repaid his expenses.
