If we talk about the music industry, what name would come up in your mind? For a pop music lover or a Fashionholic, yes that would be ‘Rihanna’, the Caribbean Queen. The girl who lived her life as a normal island girl, popped the music world with her debut album ‘Music of the Sun’.
However, Rihanna’s success story is not just confined to the music industry, as she hit it off in her other ventures too. Her phenomenal journey includes her stint with the fashion world, endorsements, business endeavours, philanthropy.
Although the princess of pop always steals the limelight because of her talent. But this time Robyn Rihanna Fenty, the Barbadian singer is in the limelight not for her singing prowess but for the infringement of a trademark.
Being a fashionholic is like second nature for every woman and Kiss Nail Products are one of the most sought after. It’s a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of professional nail products.
Women love pampering themselves and Kiss holds the distinction of satiating this desire in the real sense; holding a leading position in markets worldwide their business is expanding at an astounding rate. They develop and sell numerous professional products which are available worldwide.
Interestingly, “Kiss by Rihanna” is not the first fragrance launched by the pop icon. Reb’l Fleur, Rebelle, Nude, Rogue, RiRi by Rihanna are also among her highly successful fragrances.
Apart from her success in various ventures, she has been awarded with numerous awards. But her Lifetime Achievement Awards doesn't permit her to use someone else fame icon. Her altruism and endowment don’t let her to cross the law line.
It creates a dilemma for the consumers who fork over 60 bucks for a 3.4 ounce bottle of Rihanna’s perfume. They could possibly be sold to the same customers who wanted to buy Kiss Nail Products, people are likely to be misled into falsely believing that they are somehow connected.
The Recent market scenario shows that every gigantic player hangs fire to rob the other player’s wealth.
This is not the first time that Rihanna has been caught in a controversy surrounding trademarks. Back in 2015, DC Comics had cried foul when she tried to trademark her name “Robyn” which is taken from her full name Robyn Rihanna Fenty, as it closely resembled the name of batman’s famous sidekick “Robin”.
Rihanna herself is a brand name, instead of using others fame, Rihanna could extract something original from her own glory, which may get her out of hock. Her popularity doesn’t need any controversy to get into the public attention.
You can avoid the trouble by analysing the existence of your own wanna be fame, else someone can screw your public esteem.
If you really want to pamper yourself with the real ‘KISS’that might paving the way for you.
