Kanye Never Officially Owned the Yeezy Trademark For Clothing And Now a Chinese Company Owns it
According to Hypebeast, Kanye West and his popular Yeezy Brand may be up for a difficult legal battle if they want to expand the Yeezy product range.
Hypebeast reports that all thought Kanye currently owns the “YEEZY” trademark for footwear, for an unclear reason his company lost the “YEEZY” trademark for clothing and accessory items. Seems like Kanye’s legal team wasn’t paying attention and a Chinese company named Fujian Baby Network Technology co. (crazy name right!?) scooped up the trademark in question and filed for ownership of the “YEEZY” brand for clothing. When Kanye’s company applied for the “YEEZY” trademark for clothing they were denied as the fast-acting Chinese company claimed full ownership.
Neither party has made any official legal moves so stay tuned.
