Beyoncé describes daughter Blue Ivy as a “cultural icon”
By Bandook - September 26, 2019
You can call your child a lot of things, but “cultural icon” is kinda taking things too far. Even if you’re Beyoncé and your child is Blue Ivy Carter.
Well, the reason Queen Bey’s lawyers had to use those words for her eldest child is to justify her attempt in trademarking her daughter’s name.
That attempt has been blocked by wedding planner Wendy Morales, who claims that she was using the name first.
Bey’s lawyers called the opposition’s case “frivolous” and asked the US Patent and Trademark Office to dismiss it.
Beyonce’s legal team argue that Blue Ivy, her eldest child with Jay-Z, is a “cultural icon” and a “mini style star”.
The court documents state: “The Opposition, which 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.”
It was also stated that Beyoncé is seeking to trademark “Blue Ivy Carter” as it identifies the child’s “celebrity”, in contrast to Morales’ events planning business.>
