Cardi B won’t be making money moves just yet.
The rapper, 26, filed paperwork to trademark “okurrr” in March, but she was denied the registration because the term is a “widely-used commonplace expression,” per United States Patent and Trademark Office records obtained by Page Six on Tuesday.
The trademark office argued that since people are already accustomed to the term, they wouldn’t necessarily associate “okurrr” with Cardi.
However, Cardi can file her own evidence proving otherwise to obtain the trademark. It is unclear if she intends to appeal.
She originally wanted the mark for “clothing, namely, T-shirts, sweatshirts, hooded sweatshirts, pants, shorts, jackets, footwear, headgear, namely, hats and caps, blouses, bodysuits, dresses, jumpsuits, leggings, shirts, sweaters, undergarments” and “paper goods, namely, paper cups and posters,” per the initial filing.Eyewitness?
