Beyonce Argues Fame Should Win Her The Right To Blue Ivy Trademark
(AllHipHop News) Beyonce has called her seven-year-old daughter Blue Ivy a "cultural icon," as her legal fight with wedding planner Wendy Morales continues.
That is when the Bey took legal action to trademark her daughter's name.
"(Morales claims) that consumers are likely to be confused between a boutique wedding event planning business and Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of two of the most famous performers in the world, is frivolous and should be refused in its entirety," Beyonce's legal team argued, adding that the trademark she and husband Jay-Z are seeking is for "Blue Ivy Carter" and not just "Blue Ivy.'
“Blue Ivy Carter is a cultural icon who has been described as a ‘mini style star’ and has been celebrated for her ‘fashion moments’ over the years. Her life and activities are followed extensively by the media and the public," the documents continued.
"Most significantly, Blue Ivy Carter has achieved a significant amount of fame, particularly at such a young age. She also has a noted and well-chronicled interest in fashion. Given these factors, Blue Ivy Carter is capable of and interested in becoming the face of a brand. For this reason, the factual context demonstrates that BGK filed the Application with the intent to build a brand around Blue Ivy Carter and her public reputation and renown.”
Both parties are set to go to trial over the conflict.
