Kanye West's Yeezy & Wal-Mart Disputing Over Logo Similarities: Report
 

 
Walmart claims Kanye West's Yeezy filed a trademark application with a logo that is similar to theirs.

Kanye West turned his fashion aspirations into a multi-billion dollar empire that continues to grow. However, that doesn't happen without its fair share of litigation. It turns out, Yeezy is now at odds with Wal-Mart over a 2020 trademark application with a logo that the retail company says is eerily similar to their own, per The Fashion Law.

Wal-Mart filed a notice of opposition to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office arguing against Kanye's logo. They described the design as "eight dotted lines, each comprising three totally shaded circles, with a total of 24 circles, arranged at equal angles as rays from a sun." Kanye's Yeezy brand reportedly wanted to use the design for clothing, music, hotels, and "non-metal modular homes."

Walmart argued that they "will be damaged by registration of [Yeezy LLC’s] mark" since they've used the design since 2007. They said that Walmart's logo "has become well known and famous as a distinctive indicator of the origin of [its] goods and services and a symbol of [its] goodwill." Meanwhile, they've also used their logo to brand similar services as Yeezy's plans including clothes, music, and retail services. However, they are not creating "non-metal modular homes" like 'Ye.

In related news, the rapper's original Air Yeezy 1 that he wore at the Grammys sold to the tune of $1.8 million.

I don’t even think of Walmart when I see the logo. But this is a good way to get in the news tho. They basically gave their lawyer the marketing budget

They’re probably doing Kanye a favor. He could have a better logo.

Walmart is not a clothing brand so their trademark may not be valid unless someone had the foresight to register the mark for clothing. I doubt it as I would a*sume they never wanted to be in clothing brand business. Same goes for the other look a like. Trade marks are industry specific.

especially while carrying sneakers that are 3 stitches and a lack of a logo away from being carbon copies of their brand name counterparts.........

How if a pentagram has five points? Walmart’s logo has six like the Star of David

Ytf would it matter, not going to cause any confusion between someone wanting some a pair of yeezy vs grocery items or department items.
