Snooki Gets Defeated By Snooky The Underwater Cat In Trademark Bid

Government officials have rejected “Jersey Shore” cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s application to trademark her nickname so she can slap it on books.

U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) records show that registration of a “Snooki” mark for “printed matter, namely books” was recently refused because of a “likelihood of confusion” with a previously issued trademark. That 2004 mark was, amusingly, for “Adventures of Snooky,” a children’s book featuring a cat who gets knocked overboard while on a family fishing trip.

Here’s how the publisher describes Snooky’s underwater escapades: “Join Snooky as he makes many new friends searching for his family under the sea. Find out what happens when Snooky’s new friends run into danger. Can he help save them? Will Snooky ever find his lost family?”

Snooky (left) and Snooki (right) are pictured above.

Though stymied by a fictional cat, Polizzi “may respond to the refusal by submitting evidence and arguments in support of registration,” according to USPTO flings. On a positive note for Polizzi, her application to trademark “Snooki” for use in “Entertainment in the nature of personal appearances by a television personality” appears on track.

Snooky.....Snooki....... mmmmmmm........ cat food......
What's the difference between the two? One's a dumb pussy, the other a dumb c***.
Trademarked in 2004? In her defense, I'm sure Snooki has been cartoonish since way before then.
The article is a bit misleading. While the Office Action found another registered mark which could be confused with her application for "printed matter, namely books" goods, she filed her application for two different types of goods and services. The article fails to mention that the Patent and Trademark Office is permitting her application for "Entertainment in the nature of personal appearances by a television personality"to proceed - So, at the very least, she should get a registration for entertainment services (assuming she is unable to get around the children's book trademark and no one files an opposition)
Although I don't advocate violence against women, is it wrong that I smile fondly every time I see that video of her getting rocked in the face?
I wish this stupid c__t would just go away before all of our kids become even dumber than they already are from watching this show.
