Nadya Suleman is filing for a trademark on the word “Octo-mom
Another ridiculous update to the Nadya Suleman story. She is now trying to make Octomom a trademark before someone else does. Supposedly there is already someone else trying to get a trademark on the name. Her lawyer says his client is now embracing the title as a means for licensing and potential income.
According to thesmokinggun.com- Nadya Suleman, who has shown a knack for cashing in on her post-natal predicament, last Friday filed two applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in a bid to commercially exploit her tabloid-bestowed nickname. In her April 10 USPTO filings, the 33-year-old mother of 14 identifies herself as “Nadya Suleman, AKA Octomom,” and notes that she wants to use the “Octomom” handle on products such as dresses, pants, shirts, and disposable and textile diapers. Suleman also wants to secure a trademark to use “Octomom” in connection with TV variety programming. As seen in the below excerpts from Suleman’s USPTO applications, she had to sign a letter consenting to “the use of my nickname as a Trademark or Servicemark.” The USPTO applications, which cost Suleman a total of $825 and only include a bland logotype, were filed for her by a Whittier, California law firm whose web site reports that it offers “Intellectual Property and Family Law services.”
