Celeb Trademark Drama

They were part of my little routine…

I spent a lot of time alone as a kid. And one of my favorite things to do was take a bath, put on comfy clothes, make a cozy dinner (I was like 7, so it was mac + cheese — still my favorite!), and crack open a fresh new issue of one of my favorite magazines. Name a magazine, and I probably loved it as a kid: Glamour, Self, Health, O Magazine, Teen Vogue.

After I saw Whitney from The Hills go to work at Teen Vogue, it sealed my dream to work at a magazine one day, too. One of my favorite segments of any magazine was the one you can still find in any US Weekly mag — “Stars! They’re Just Like Us” I loved seeing Mila & Ashton going for groceries, or Britney grabbing her beloved Starbucks.

So lately when I’ve seen so many celeb trademark drama, I’ve thought:

Stars! They’re just like us! They have trademark problems, too. 😆

Filing a Trademark Doesn’t Have To Be Difficult

You’ve got Meghan Markle trying to trademark the word “archetypes” for her podcast (uh oh – there’s already a TM for that.) And Eminem going after Real Housewives for the use of “Slim Shady.”

While Lizzo’s fighting to register a curse word (which used to be unheard of!) as part of her brand. Meghan, Eminem and Lizzo… they’ve got all the money in the world! They can fight trademarks until the cows come home.

But us, on the other hand?

We don’t have time (or dough 💰) for all that trademark drama.

You’ve got a business with a to-do list longer than a Real Housewife’s extensions.

You can’t be flinging trademark spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks — and pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to a trademark lawyer if it doesn’t go smoothly.
