"Six weeks after emerging as the public face of widespread discontent with corporate America, Occupy Wall Street has found itself in an unlikely battle over trademark rights. The loosely organized group -- formed to protest corporate greed and government dysfunction -- had hoped to trademark its name so it could get the word out with tee-shirts, caps and bags without fear of lawsuits. 'There have been many different organizations attempting to file for trademarks around OWS,' lawyer Samuel Cohen, the protester in charge of the effort, told AFP." [editor's note: Egad!
