San Diego – Long Island couple Robert and Diane Maresca filed a trademark application for “Occupy Wall Street” with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The “Occupy” movement began on Wall Street but has since spread to other cities and eventually other countries.
Occupy Wall Street began on September 17, 2011 in Manhattan’s Financial District and is fighting against banks and corporations and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse which has caused a global recession.
With the trademark application , the Marescas intend to create a variety of products including bumper stickers, t-shirts, bags and other similar goods. The Marescas considered the phrase “We are the 99%.” but ultimately decided on “Occupy Wall Street” believing that it has more economic potential.
