Craziest Celebrity Trademarks

12 of 14

'Jersey Shore' Stars: Various

Some “Jersey Shore” stars had more luck with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office than others.
  • Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi's attempt to trademark her name was rejected on the basis that a cartoon cat called "Snooky" was already trademarked and it presented the “likelihood of confusion.”
  • Paul Delvecchio, Jr., best known as "DJ Pauly D," was denied because there is already a trademark for a man called DJ Paulie.
  • Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s application was rejected due to a line of footwear bearing the same name.
  • The only cast member who has not been denied a trademark for his or her name is Jenni "J-WOWW” Farley.
