Cardi B’s Signature “Okurrr” Phrase Denied Trademark Registration By Government Officials

Cardi B will not be able to exclusively cash in on her well known catchphrase after officials shut down the hip-hop star and claimed her phrase isn’t all that special .

According to documents obtained by The Blast, Cardi was refused a trademark registration after filing to lock down her phrase, “Okurrr.” U.S. Patent and Trademark officials explained that Cardi’s slogan falls under the category of “widely-used commonplace expressions,” and did not fit the bill to deserve a trademark.

They also noted that Okurrr, “is a slogan or term that does not function as a trademark or service mark to indicate the source of applicant’s goods and/or services,” and that it does not distinguish itself from other similar marks

Cardi B on her part before has argued that wherever she went people have uniquely given the phrase to her and are always trying to get her to teach them how to go about sounding it.

Cardi B says she feels like the phrase is important to her and she feels like she wants to keep other people from benefiting from it’s unauthorised use however as the government noted, it is not very special to warrant protection under law.
