On the Come Up: Trademarking “Octomom”

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Nadya Suleman is a hustler if we’ve ever seen one. Now, she is working on a deal to trademark her nick name:

Just call her Octomom! Nadya Suleman, the now-famous mother of octuplets, has filed an application to trademark the word “Octomom.” But she’s not the first to think of it: A Houston-based novelty company beat her to the punch by a month. Still, Suleman’s lawyer says it’s Nadya who has a legitimate claim to the name. “It’s not going to matter because they had no permission from Nadya, who has the rightful claim to the name ‘Octomom’, ” says Suleman’s attorney Jeff Czech.

Suleman has previously said she disliked being called “Octomom,” but the unemployed mother of 14 realized it could be used to provide a source of revenue for her family. “She’s never warmed to it, but the idea would be for others to use it for licensing,” says Czech. “It’s just a smart thing to do.” Her application was filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on April 10 by Czech, who quickly discovered a similar request had been filed a month earlier. He recently sent a letter to the law firm that filed the request, informing them that their client had no legal rights to the word. According to Czech, Suleman has been contacted by clothing designers and manufacturers of dolls and infant accessories. “We’ve had phone calls, but it’s a stretch to call them offers,” he says, adding that he’s currently in the midst of negotiations with producers for a reality TV show involving Suleman.

She is playing the hell out of the American system. F*ck an Octomom!

    this bytch is disgusting

  • Whateva

    Its funny how in a matter of months she goes from being on welfare struggling asking for donations to wearing $200 shirts and shoes, 1500 dollars bebe shopping sprees and a half a million dollar house life must be really good for her

  • ok

    She is doing her own reality show and is probably going to call it “octomom” or something so that’s why she probably needs to get it trademarked. She’s not a “ho”, she’s just an idiot ! But hey she’s not living off welfare, she got money from interviews and student loans, she’s living in a million dollar home now. She’s not abusing her kids, she’s not molesting them, i think she treats her kids a lot better than how some women treat their kids in line at the local walmart ! She’s crazy for being a single mother of 14 kids, but hey some folks have only 2 kids and still are bad parents !

  • Sasha

    You know the media talks about her only wanting exposure but then they put her out there everyday. She had those kids for the money ahd she is about to get it, but one day she will realize all the money in the world dont make up for what she is lacking and that is class. She should have those children taken from her and given to someone who will love them not the money she feels she can get from them. It is a sad day in America when people have multiple children for a get rich scheme!!!

  • Joyce

    She’s not living off of welfare…yet. Once the reality tv show bombs, and she has spent whatever dollars she makes, she’ll spend it on more plastic surgery and semi-expensive clothes. I am 100 percent confident that this triflin ho will be broke in five years and begging the state help her support her kids. Let us not forget that those kids will have health and developmental problems probably for the rest of their lives.

    She’s not an Octomom – she’s an Octoho

  • 1st Lady

    Well, she’ll never be able to live that name down. Might has well get paid for it too!
