SAN FRANCISCO — T-shirts, coffee mugs, and other merchandise emblazoned with Occupy locations and slogans related to the nationwide movement are now being offered online and amid the camp sites that have sprung up in cities across the country.

A number of merchandise vendors, clothing designers and others are making plans to market a wide-variety of goods for a wide-variety of reasons even as some protesters decry the business plans as directly counter to the demonstrations' goals.

The U.S Patent and Trademark Office has received several applications from people and businesses seeking to own the word "Occupy" and the slogan "We are the 99 percent" and the like. Two groups are even competing for the trademark to "Occupy Wall Street."

The winner will control the rights to the products carrying that phrase.
