Kris Jenner to copyright the word 'momager'

Reality TV star Kris Jenner has recently filed legal documents to trademark the term 'momager'. For those who are unaware of what the word momager means, it refers to a celebrity's mother who also acts as their manager. If this legal lock is successful it will mean anyone else who wants to use the description will need the Kardashian matriarch's permission or she could sue them. 

It looks like Jenner might win this one, because she has already trademarked the word 'momager' for her personal management services and for use on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. What is it with this family and trademarking words, names etc? Earlier this month Kendall and Kylie Jenner also filed applications to trademark their names. I'd love to know how this would be enforced? If there's any media law experts reading my blog post I'd love you to shed some light on it. How can one keep track of who uses words and names? The whole thing sounds ridiculous to me.
