Octomom Wants Trademark

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.

octomom_trademark_nadya_sulemanAccording 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.”

  1. Good for Octomom. This lady needs to make all the money she can to raise her 14 children. Remember the Indian Proverb “Do not judge me until you walk a
    mile in my shoes”. God be with her in all her endeavors to support and raise her children.

  3. What a bunch of bull!!! She was the one who decided to have all those kids-she should be the one to take care of them-not me or anyone else. You know-I work my tail off and the fact that my tax money goes to help her sickens me!!! I work 16 hour days and I raise a family-you think I like that? I do what I have to do for myself and my family-she should do the same.

  4. I don’t feel sorry for her. She needs to go out and get a job and not live off of the working people! And as for her kids,I hope that they don’t develop health problems when they get older. A woman’s body is NOT MEANT TO HAVE A LITTER. She knew the risks. She’s nuts. Now her kids may have to pay with their health and us supporting her financially. I agree with Kristy!

  6. I wonder if trying to own a name one didn’t create is just a bit problematic. If, by some wave of lunacy, Nadya should make it to the big time with the name, wouldn’t the creator of the name–some tabloid journalist, editor or wag–own a piece of the action?

    And then there’s my next question. If Octomom is as intellectually shallow and morally bankrupt as it appears, why would anyone want to buy her logo products?

    “Laura Ashley” sells. The market for Lizzie Borden axes and bloodstain remover doesn’t seem to exist. We do have all those tutorials “for dummies.” Maybe Nadya’s title could be “Grand Scam Financial and Emotional Manipulation for Dummies.”

    I feel sorry for those kids. I hope the father’s contribution to the gene pool is fabulous so the kids have a fighting chance.

  7. I have a question that maybe somebody could answer. I understand that Nadya has been receiving Food Stamps for quite a few years. Unemployment and disability payments are usually received without needs testing–one’s net worth is simply not part of the formula. Similarly, one’s children might be eligible for SSI without reference to the parent’s income or net worth. But qualification for Food Stamps, as I understand the program, requires disclosure of both income and a*sets. An applicant is ineligible for Food Stamps if his/her liquid a*sets (generally cash & stocks) exceed a rather low threshhold.

    Here’s the question: How many lies and or misrepresentations did Nadya make on applications for public a*sistance by claiming poverty? If she had enough stashed away to pay for the in-vitro procedures, how did she qualify for Food Stamps? I’m guessing that she lied on every application along the way.

    I look forward to hearing from someone who possesses knowledge of the applicable law and regulations for California.

  11. Why was this woman allowed to do this. She could not take care of the children she had without help from welfare. My tax dollars should not be her source of income. Get a JOB. Stop having babies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Putting my negateve feelings aside for her. I do believe she does deserve the name, she did make it happen and if anyone should be cashing in, it should be her. Lets just pray she uses it for her children and education.

  13. I feel the people should boycott her show…it’s the only reason she had those children was to live off the money she’s going to receive from all the publicity. This woman needs therapy and should never of had children. She’s a nut case and her children are going to suffer for her selfishness. I don’t feel you should “cash in” on your children. This woman is sick sick sick sick ……etc

  14. Her kids will NO DOUBT grow up with problems like her….Get use to it people, I’m sure our tax dollars will be paying for they’re mental heath when they grow up due to neglect growing up…or….they’ll end up getting in trouble and going to jail, which we’ll still be paying for with tax dollars, all because this lady is selfish and cares about no one other than herself! PERIOD! It’s very sad for the kids! People whom are mentally unstable shouldn’t be allowed to raise a child because that causes more unstable people in our society!

  16. I just watched her show last nite and was so disgusted at the behavior of her two year ol Caleb who is very aggressive towrds his siblings and tried to sit on one of the babies while they were laying on the ground. At one point he called his mom a b***h. My mmouth dropped and she did absolutly NOTHING about it. She kept putting him in time out for something else which was useless b/c she didn’t enforce it. I feel so sorry for this child. If she doesn’t get a handle on it he’s going to go down a very bad road when he gets older. But, I do wish her luck in raising all of these kids. She may have made a mistake but she obviously loves her children.

  18. Hmmmm……in some states if you are going to receive welfare you are required to disclose the father’s name and the state goes after them for child support in an effort to help the mother get off of welfare. I wonder how it would work in this case. It’s kinda interesting that he can father so many children and not be responsible for them – if this had been a case of a traditional conception (I am not saying there is anything wrong with invitro) he could be made by the courts to pay child support.

  19. Octomom is as annoying as Jon and Kate plus 8.
    Both families cashing in on kids produced by fertility drugs, born into equally unstable circumstances, both women trying to make a career out of artificial multiple birthing, plastic surgery and sponsorship deals.
    Let’s face it multiple births like this do not happen naturally, and until they do (unlikely), these silly money grabbing self absorbed people should go out to work like the rest of us and support their kids instead of flaunting their bodies at endless photo shoots keeping them away from the children for long periods of time, writing books, and worse of all depending on the welfare state to pay for them!
    These people are as artificial as the drugs they pump into their bodies to create their broods and in time selfishly leaving an even larger carbon footprint behind to destroy the planet!

  20. For most of us, daycare expenses form a huge chunk of their monthly budget, and it has become extremely difficult for them to see a way through it.

  25. Nadya will get the last laugh. People that slander her name in the future or use her copyright or trademark can be sued;

    Slander carries a heavy price as well, now you *all* can put your money where your mouth is 🙂

    good luck :)))

  26. I think the dumb doctor who inseminated her 14 times should pay for the child support. People like these we need to erase off of the earth.
