Kylie Minogue defeats Kylie Jenner for name trademark

Kylie Minogue beats Kylie Jenner for name trademark

A victor has emerged in the war between Kylies.

As reported by Entertainment Weekly, “Australian singer Kylie Minogue won a legal battle on Monday [Feb. 6] against reality star Kylie Jenner over the trademark of their shared first name.”

The battle between pop star Minogue and Keeping Up with the Kardashians personality Jenner began in 2014. At the time, Jenner, now 19, filed a U.S. trademark application for the name Kylie.

However, in February 2016, Minogue fired back by filing a notice of opposition. An Australian business representing the 48-year-old “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” singer claimed that approving Jenner’s request would “confuse audiences and dilute Minogue’s brand,” as EW noted.

It was also pointed out that Minogue already owned trademarks for “Kylie Minogue Darling,” “Lucky — the Kylie Minogue musical, “Kylie Minogue” and Kylie.com.

Additionally, the Australian business bashed Jenner by stating her “photographic exhibitionism” via social media had elicited criticism from communities, and referred to her as a “secondary reality television personality” and “supporting character” on her sisters’ show KUWTK.

    Amazing…amazingly stupid. Ya, does anyone have to get permission to name their kid Kylie? Then every time you call your kid for dinner or to scold your child, you owe Minoque or Jenny .05 cents? What a F*’d up world we live in.

    Totally Team Minogue! It’s ridiculous that it ended up in court, but I’m in favor of anyone who isn’t a Kardashian.

    I think the whole thing is ridiculous, but Kylie Minogue did not take her to court for having the same name, she took her to court because she was trying to have the name trademarked. Big difference. But the whole thing is crazy ridiculous.

    They’re not talking about preventing people from naming their children Kylie. They’re talking about people not being able to advertise as the brand “Kylie” if they aren’t associated directly with Kylie Minogue’s brand.
