Beyoncé Blocks Man Trying to Trademark ‘Poison Ivy Park’

Beyonce, Ivy Park, trademark

After nearly a year in court, Beyoncé prevailed n a legal battle against Mike Lin, the owner of 42/72 Inc., who was attempting to trademark the name, “Poison Ivy Park.” The singer claimed the name was too close to “Ivy Park,” the name of her activewear brand.

According to The Blast, Lin filed documents to trademark the three-letter name on the very same day the music icon launched her clothing line. Beyoncé’s legal team said the small business owner would profit off of her name and years of work if he was allowed to use “Poison Ivy Park” as a brand name. It was asserted that consumers would be misled due to the similarity of the names and thus Lin would be making sales based on Bey’s international stardom.

The Trademark Board reportedly ruled in Beyoncé’s favor because Lin never responded to the motion.

IVY PARK was co-founded by the Grammy Award-winning singer and the fashion retailer, Topshop, in 2016.
