It’s Happening … Capitalism Gets Its Greedy Hands on OWS

1 Nov

A few days ago, I started wondering when companies might start trying to co-opt the Occupy Wall Street movement.  Ask and ye shall receive…at least that’s what the people who have applied for trademark ownership of some OWS slogans and anthems are hoping.  Check out a list of applications with the USPTO on this blog.  http://trademarkready.com/occupy-wall-street%E2%84%A2-trademarks

Now, (hoping still that ask [a question] and ye shall receive [an answer]), what I really wanna know is, just what are those companies gonna do with the money?  Are they working their way toward that slender category of America’s wealthiest, now monikered the 1%?  Or are they gonna honor the spirit of OWS, and put some of the proceeds into any of the many causes the protesters are advocating?
