Kylie Jenner Forgot That There Was Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue
Many thought that Kylie Jenner may have forgotten who the original Kylie is.

Australian pop artist Kylie Minogue has attempted to block an application by reality TV star Kylie Jenner to trademark her first name, on the basis that it would cause confusion between the two and dilute Minogue's brand.

Jenner sought to have her name protected for advertising and endorsement purposes, with the Melbourne-based business representing Minogue, KDB, filing its opposition with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office last 22 February.

The notice of opposition contains numerous logos that have been used by Minogue in the decades gone by, pointing to her ownership of the domain since August 1996, alongside the claim that she is often referred to as simply "Kylie" around the world.

Part of the opposition also includes the fact that Kylie has existing trademark registrations for entertainment services, for which Jenner has also filed a trademark application for, as well as for music recordings, according to the World Intellectual Property Review.
