They may lose millions in the courtroom
There’s something so interesting about when the rich and famous get found out to be lifting designs and styles from the less well-known artists and personalities of the world. You’d think that, with all that money to get them by, they would have nothing but time to create and make new, unique things for their own brand. However, we’ve seen people like the Kardashian/Jenner ladies be constantly called thieves of intellectual properties. This time, Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashians are the ones heading to the courtroom to defend their decisions.
The Kardashian/Jenner ladies have found themselves in legal hot water yet again! We just got over Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner being called out for using copyrighted images of Ozzy Osbourne, Tupac, and the Notorious B.I.G. with their own visages superimposed on top for some pricey t-shirts. They immediately stopped selling the shirts the moment they were released and apologized for it.
Kylie stated, “These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologize to anyone that has been upset and/or offended.”
Kylie is back in trouble for potential thievery alongside her older sister Kim Kardashian, who is no stranger to legal action. Kim’s line of KKW makeup released on June 21st, 2017, much to the delight of her fans, but there’s a professional makeup line out there who’s pretty mad about Kim’s line.
One Letter Off
Kirsten Kjaer Weiss has been selling her KW line for years, so she doesn’t want to be overshadowed now by this reality star’s stuff. Kirsten said that Kim was “knowing, willing and deliberate” when she gave her line a similar name, so she’s seeking all of the profits that Kim has already made from her makeup. She also wants KKW Cosmetics to change its name.
Kim is prepared to fight the lawsuit, saying the names and lines aren’t similar. Several trademark attorneys said that the name was good to go before she even released the makeup, so Kim’s case may be airtight.
Now for little sister Kylie…
