hello guys and welcome to today's video now we all know how celebrities love to give unique names to their kids something that nobody has ever thought of or even heard hence that's what makes these names so special and extravagant but do you know to what extent these celebrities have to go to protect their babies names as almost the whole world is after them to use them on various products and services well in today's video this is exactly what we will be talking about so without further ado let's get started keeping the name of a child is one of the most important and thoughtful things for parents they tend to spend a lot of time giving a beautiful and meaningful name to their kids however parents in the entertainment industry take this whole process up a notch using their creative flair and setting a name for their kid which probably goes on to become the most uncommon name in the world but there are some people who are just eager to make money out of these names by associating them with their products so celebrity parents have to take precautions to protect the name of their child and their interests but how do they do that by filling trademarks the grammy-winning female rapper cardi b and her rapper husband offset also one of the members of the trio rap group migos welcomed their baby daughter and decided to give her a very unique name culture chiari cephas the two parents immediately trademarked the name of their daughter and according to the blast the couple even filed documents to register the name for the merchandising of shirts sweaters jackets pants skirts and footwear the filling has been made under a company which is registered to offset called sally smith llc the couple has expressed their further interest in using the name for other merchandising purposes like fan clubs motion pictures and entertainment marketing services did you know that kylie jenner trademarked her daughter stormy's name even before she was born kylie's fame has begun even before she was born from keeping up with the kardashians to today having her own million dollars company of kylie cosmetics her pregnancy did create a lot of interest in the media more so because she chose not to confirm or deny whether she was expecting a baby whether or not but after she gave birth to her daughter stormy webster with american rapper travis scott the media didn't lose their interest in the child's name which is probably something kylie predicted a long time ago and trademarked stormy's name before she was born kylie jenner business minded much coming next to the daughter of queen b and jay-z blew ivy carter before the music super couple could submit their application to trademark their children's names two other people already tried to claim the trademark blue ivy carter you see with fame comes a huge price to pay although fortunately the u.s patent and trademark office rejected those claims as it was illegal to register a trademark without a genuine affiliation which in easier words means that one cannot trademark someone else's name without their permission however beyonce and jay-z still don't own the trademark for blue ivy carter the couple wanted to register the name under the child or baby products category which at the same time eliminates the chance of any other attempts to use the name for any kind of children's products they even tried to register their daughter's name for fragrances clothing entertainment and almost everything but in the end they decided to protect her name and said that they weren't interested in trademarking her name for commercial reasons in 2013 beyonce told vanity fair people wanted to make products based on our child's name and you don't want anybody trying to benefit off of your baby's name the kardashian jenner family has allegedly been following the same path as the carters that is registering their children's names under the children's product category so it can be predicted that in the future we might get kardashian branded children's goods kylie jenner's brand kylie cosmetics already has a collaboration with stormy under her name itself tyler even dropped a pretty huge hint that her brand kylie baby is the brand for which she has trademarked her daughter's name when she tagged at kylie baby in an adorable bath time instagram picture of stormy in june 2021 our next power couple is victoria and david beckham who has a total of four children three sons and a daughter the star kids have become quite well known to the media as they are being photographed regularly as can be expected the beckhams made sure to give unique names to their kids so they named their sons romeo james brooklyn and cruz and their only daughter was named harper7 the couple is said to have filed to trademark their children's names according to bbc they have registered their children's names with intellectual property authorities in britain and europe pop princess britney spears launched a clothing line with her son's name according to a 2006 report from people magazine when her firstborn sean preston was just a toddler it is believed that since then spears started creating doodles on children's clothes the people magazine's publication socialites life also discovered that britney had decided to trademark shawn's name for a clothing line although as far as we know there hasn't been any collection yet even ashton kutcher and mila kunis after welcoming their firstborn wyatt isabelle kutcher decided to protect her name and unlike other celebrities kutcher decided to simply buy up all the domain names of the websites relating to his daughter instead of filing a trademark he told the trademark explaining his decision we immediately went home and reserved all domain names we've got everything you could possibly get which also includes social media accounts and an email address awestruck yes so are we coming back to the kardashians again it has been known according to cbs news the sisters kim chloe and kourtney kardashians have all trademarked their names and now kim kardashian west and her ex-husband kanye west decided to copyright the names of their four children north saint chicago and psalm an insider explained that on one hand the couple is extremely business-minded but this decision came from their protectiveness about privacy this also means that they could control anything to do with their kids names sounds scary doesn't it american singer-songwriter chris brown is the proud father of his daughter royalty whom he now co-parents with model nia guzman it has been known that when the girl was only three years of age her mother helped her to launch a royalty brown clothing collection which has a monster t-shirt with a cartoon image of royalty's face and accessories this announcement came in 2016 after guzman decided to file a trademark for royalty's name the original filing of this trademark hints that there would be a clothing line arriving very soon as it asked for everything starting from dresses for children and babies to toddlers and infants one-piece clothing now why is it so very important for celebrities to trademark their baby's names well a celebrity'

guys good morning it's aisha chidolai i'm a trademark attorney here in orlando florida i represent clients all over the united states internationally as long as you have an intellectual property or trademark that you'd like to protect here in the united states i can assist you um you can call my office 407-995-6567 okay so today in lipsticks and trademarks um i want to talk about well i guess first let's get out of the way i'm one uh topped with brandy um mac retro matte um lipstick today i'm sure you guys noticed they'll probably say you know you wear mac all the time i just do you know you know i'm the kind of person that if something works i stick to it i don't experiment with a bunch of different things unless something is not working if it's working there's no need for me um to inconvenience myself and look for other things um so yeah that's why i use mostly mac i mean i have some other products that i use but that's usually a staple um in my makeup collection um so now that i have that out of the way um i want to talk oh and the other thing i want to say is that yay it is 70 70 degrees today in florida you know we had a very hot halloween yesterday and so i'm so happy that the temperature has cooled down even though i'm still a little bit under the weather but i got to wear my sweater today you know for those of you in the northeast and other parts of the world where it's cool you know you you you can't understand um the way i feel right now because it's probably been cold there um okay now that's out of the way so in trademarks today i want to talk about you know um i've been talking a lot recently about celebrities and you know them trademarking either a slogan or something a phrase they've come up with or trademarking their children's name or whatever so today i just want to talk about why celebrities trademark their children's names and why or if you as a parent who's not a celebrity should be trademarking um your child's name so um you know one of the reasons um well first of all we live in a very um celebrity obsessed society so you know people are obsessed with popular culture what's trendy and what's going on who's the latest latest celebrity you know overnight successes and as a result you know a lot of people are also that obsessed with them that they're tattooing them all over their bodies they're naming their children that they're changing their names to that you know or whatever it is and so for a lot of celebrities especially those who are very popular one way to protect something that they consider intimate to them you know is through trademarking it as a type of business that they're going to do so you know you see the kardashians who have basically conglomerates or empire of you know different talented or you know well some people can argue that but you know they are talented in whatever it is that they do of people who basically have earned billions of dollars in different brands that are theirs and you know have um a series of children basically coming up to take over those names and as you probably know that they've all given them all these unique names um the reason why a lot of them will trademark is because they don't want people to profit off of their children the same reason why um beyonce tried to um trademark blue ivy and also try to trademark roomie i think i don't remember her other child's name you know she's not been successful with blue ivy but the same reason because they don't want people going to profit off of their children's name um so but the question is can they just go and just say well i'm just going to treat my my child and my i'm going to train my my child's name no you can't just go trademarking your child's name so trademark means you know i've said this several times means that you're trade marking something because to use it as a business in interstate commerce um and so even though they go and trademark their children's name they need to create a category or class of what they're trademarking so a lot of them you know my trade market for like clothes accessories baby products or whatever you know an example of that is candy bars who's a real housewives of atlanta star you know she used to be on escape the music group um her son ace you know he's got like a baby line where they make plays cheating products and all that good stuff so um she's trademarked that so you know before um a celebrity can actually get an approved trademark you know um one of the things that they need to keep in mind is that um they have to file an intent to use so like if they just gave birth to their child and they could put in the application usually it's an intent to use trademark and what that means is that you intend to use the trademark um you may not have started using it yet but you you want to just basically say to the trademark office just hold this name for me while i get all my things together so that i can use this trademark um and it's for celebrities to do that because they have the money to keep um extending um the time that they need so you've got a max of three years that you can extend the time um of which you can apply for um an intense use and after three years if you still haven't come up with a product then you know it's too bad somebody else can have that mark um you know and then you know so that's why um celebrities do do that so now for us as you know regular parents you know should we be trademarking our children's name well the answer is it depends it depends on what you're doing with your children's name you know if you've got a child that um is a child celebrity or a child that is creating products you know such as like um candy burst but imagine if your child there's so many kids these days you see on social media that you know created some sort of like you know tool or you know random t-shirts or whatever it is um in those cases yeah you know it's a good idea to trademark whatever their name is the name of their business or the um mark they even is the name of their child or you have situations where we as parents want to use our children's names for our business you know you think about dave thomas who owns um who owned wendy's um you know wendy's is the name of his third child so you know in that case you know he would have been trading wendy's um trademarking wendy's because that's the name of his child same thing if you have a child named you know jack and jill um you know or i don't know jane austen i'm just thinking about random names um and you plan to create your own business clothing line called jane austen you know you of course want to trademark that so in those instances you know definitely it's good to trademark that you know and of course the caveat i said you know most people do not necessarily have the same resources the celebrities have so you know don't go go around saying okay i'm going to just put an intensities application and i'm going to figure out what i want to do because there's nothing worse than putting in an application without a plan essentially you know you put an intent to use application you know but you don't have a plan to actually ever sta
