Occupy Wall Street Applies for Occupy Wall Street™

Remember when the post reported that a non OWS protester was being all capitalist and shit trying to trademark the name "Occupy Wall Street" so that he can sell t-shirts, bags, and other swag. Well I guess the OWS organizers realized that they can be capitalist too. So they are taking some of that capital they rose to register the name Occupy Wall Street.

There have been a number of bad faith attempts to trademark Occupy Wall Street for business purposes. Now the protest organizers themselves are trying to trademark Occupy Wall Street themselves.

According to the filing, the trademark would cover everything from "periodicals and newsletters," to "t-shirts, sweatshirts, headwear, and jackets." Maybe a line of beer cozies as well?
