Trademark request denied for Cardi B's 'okurr' catchphrasePosted: Updated:
A trademark request for Cardi B's 'okurr' catchphrase has been denied.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office denied her request, saying the phrase it too common and others have been using it for years.
Having a catchphrase trademark allows the owner to use it commercially, which was Cardi B's plan.
The rapper says she wanted to use it on merchandise -- and prevent others from following suit.
