Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue has made a legal bid to stop the "Keeping up with the Kardashians" star Kylie Jenner from trademarking her first name. Minogue's bid to block Jenner's attempt is partly due to the fact that a trademarked first name could cause confusion among fans.
According to Yahoo, "Jenner sought to have her name protected for advertising and endorsement purposes." However, the Melbourne-based business representing Minogue, KDB, filed its opposition with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Feb. 22.
The article further revealed that the notice of opposition includes several logos used by the singer in the years gone by. Furthermore, the "Can't Get You Out of My Head" singer also pointed out ownership of domain www.kylie.com since 1996.
A World Intellectual Property Review article said that Minogue's reason for opposition includes trademark registrations for entertainment services for which the reality star has also filed a trademark application.
