Kylie Minogue shades Kylie Jenner – Kylie Minogue is not at all happy that reality TV star Kylie Jenner has attempted to trademark their shared first name.
18-year old Kylie Jenner had filed an application to trademark the ‘Kylie’ name, protecting it for advertisement and endorsement purposes.
Kylie Minogue, 47, through her Australian-based representatives KDB, opposed the trademark on the grounds of ” likelihood of confusion, dilution by blurring and dilution by tarnishment.”
Kylie Minogue already owns the website www.kylie.com, as well as other trademarks such as Kylie Minogue and Lucky — the Kylie Minogue musical.
In their notice of opposition, KDB described Kylie Jenner as “a secondary reality television personality,” adding that her “photographic exhibitionism and controversial posts” on social media have drawn criticism from “the Disability Rights and African-American communities.”
