Pauly D's Trademark -- The Ultimate Spin Job

2/17/2010 9:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pauly D is now the third "Jersey Shore" star to try and lock down his nickname -- but this time, he wants to use the trademark strictly for the DJ booth.

TMZ has learned Pauly has applied for a trademark on the name "DJ Pauly D" -- strictly for use "in the nature of disc jockey services."

On the application, filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Pauly points out that he has no intention of trying to exclusively own the rights to the word "DJ" -- apart from "Pauly D."

As we've previously reported, The Situation and Snooki have also applied for trademarks on their nicknames.

There already was a DJ Pauly D in New York / New Jersey long before SIMONE's douchebag boytoy came in to try to take the DJ spotlight.

Is it possible the "D" in Pauly D stands for "DEAF" as he can barely beatmatch.

the girl who wants to patent the name "snooki" can't have that name! We have been calling our daughter that for years! It is NOT an original invention. Others have that name! TMZ please contact the proper people and stop any possibility of this girl stealing from others. Seriously, many people use the same name, she can't have it !

Glad MTV & Douchebag were blocked from using the name. It was an open and shut case. They all were aware of the trademark of the real DJ Pauly and still tried to sneak it through the trademark office. Nice try Losers!!!!
