Snooki Can’t Trademark ‘Snooki’ Because of Existence of Prior Snooky

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has denied Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's request to trademark her nickname for books. There is a "likelihood of confusion" with the already trademarked children's book Adventure of Snooky: Under the Sea, about a cat who goes overboard. Furthering the confusion, both Snooki and Snooky share a yellow-orange complexion. [Smoking Gun viaBuzzfeed]
