Singer Kylie Minogue has won a legal battle against reality star Kylie Jenner over the trademark of their shared first name.
The US Patent and Trademark Office rejected Jenner's claim, but the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star is already planning an appeal to
use the brand name "Kylie" for her growing fashion and beauty lines, In 2014, Jenner,filed a US trademark application for the term "Kylie,"
seeking protection for the term in connection with advertising services.
Minogue filed a notice of opposition to Jenner's application in 2016.
Court document submitted by KDB, an Australian-based business representing Minogue, claimed that approval of Jenner's application will
confuse audiences and dilute Minogue's brand.
The company pointed out that the Australian pop star currently owns trademark registrations for "Kylie" across entertainment services and music recordings.
