"Jersey Shore" star Snooki Can't Trademark Name

| by

The producers in Hollywood won't say NO to this JOKE...but the trademark office did! HAHAHAHA.


"Jersey Shore" mess NICOLE "SNOOKI" POLIZZI recently filed an application to trademark the name "Snooki" for print media ..specifically, books...but the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office shot her down.

Apparently there's an existing trademark for "SNOOKY," which ends with a "Y" instead of an "I."  That Snooky is a fictional cartoon cat, that lives UNDERWATER, from a kids' book called "Adventures of Snooky".

Despite the spelling difference, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office refused Snooki's request because of the, quote, "likelihood of confusion" with a previous trademark.  (Snooki does have the option of appealing the decision.)
