Kylie Minogue Won’t Let Kylie Jenner Trademark Their First Name
Kylie Jenner is one of the most talked about young women in the world. And while fans love her style, she’s proven to be quite the businesswoman and has moved forward to trademark “Kylie” whenever used in advertising services. Unfortunately, not everyone is pleased with this news, especially Kylie Minogue.
Jenner put in an application with the US Patent and Trademark Office last year. And Minogue is trying to put a stop to this by having KDB, the company that represents the Aussie singer, filing “a notice of opposition” to Jenner’s application on Monday (February 22).
KDB claims that if Jenner’s application is approved and “Kylie is trademarked that will bring on confusion for both the celebrities and their brands. The company also points out that Minogue already own the trademarks for “Kylie Minogue darling,” “Lucky – the Kylie Minogue musical” and “Kylie Minogue.” KDB also slipped in some shade into their application by referring to Jenner as a “secondary reality television personality.”
Soon after Minogue filed her opposition, Jenner then applied to trademark “Kylie” for entertainment usage.
It looks like this battle is going to be a long one.
