Somebody Wants To Trademark 'Occupy Wall St.'
Originally published on Tue October 25, 2011 11:32 am
Key quote from The Smoking Gun, which found the application and spoke to Robert Maresca, a former union ironworker whose wife applied for the trademark:
Maresca said that he has visited the Wall Street protest site on several occasions and believes that corporations have too much influence on elected officials. While he has yet to mass produce any "Occupy Wall Street" product, Maresca said that he has inked some t-shirts with magic markers. Additionally, his wife has some experience making clothing and bags at home.
