but how was this not discussed earlier? I am just now discovering it so I assume it got little media attention (big surprise) when it happened.

Occupy people trying to trademark their "name"? There is some hypocrisy in their somewhere...

weird. does seem a bit hypocritical. plus aren't these people far from unified? seems like a lot of reports in the summer and fall had lots of segregation within the NYC camp.

Yeah they are far, far from organized. I am just guessing but I imagine this stems from the NYC organizers wanting to keep the "Occupy" name for themselves...or get paid for others to use it.

Capitalism? I thought that was what they were against? They are against anyone else making money but it's ok if they make it. The same old song different verse.

A lot of them were selling informational packets about the movement for $1. That's about as funny as it gets.

Well to be fair I don't think they were against making money. I think they were more against the divide between the ultra rich and the rest of us. Although there are many different people in this movement that probably have varying ideas.

Perhaps if we trademark a few popular terms then we can all become ultra-rich LOL
