Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kanye West, Kendall Jenner Trademarked 716



Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kanye West, Kendall Jenner Trademarked 716

Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kanye West, Kendall Jenner Trademarked 716: Kardashians family is too worry about their brands, unlike any other, they trademarked 716 so far, according to Forbes.

Topline: apart from this uproar over Kim Kardashian West‘s efforts to signature the term”Kimono” for an approaching shapewear lineup, her extended family (especially husband Kanye and half-sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner) harshly file trademarks–716, only by our precursory count–to guard their private brands and attempt to suspend anyone who may want to capitalize their titles.

News peg: A California judge awarded $2.7 million to Kim Kardashian Wednesday in her lawsuit against fast-fashion retailer Missguided USA, which she claimed used her “persona and trademarks” to sell knockoffs of designer looks worn by her. And only last week Kim Kardashian declared her new shapewear lineup,”Kimono,” will be renamed (after having filed trademark applications for it) as portion of cultural appropriation promptly followed.

Key history: Jana Gouchev, a Manhattan-based signature lawyer, stated the Kardashians possess a high number of trademarks so as to cover all possible business ventures. “They do not necessarily understand what they’re going to promote, so they wish to guard those ,” she explained. “Anything you would place the Kardashian title has so much significance due to the name, so that is why they wish to protect in any kind possible they can consider. Since they do not need anyone to infringe on their signature.”

The Wests, together with Kylie Jenner, registered trademark applications in their own children’s titles to stop others from using the kids’ titles in business ventures. Trademark applications will need to be renewed every five decades.

Kehlani, Tinashe criticise Lana Del Rey for posting protester footage

Lana Del Rey has found herself in hot water (again) after posting footage of protesters in Los Angeles without blurring or covering their faces to protect their identity.

Earlier this weekend (May 31), Del Rey took to the streets of LA to join one of the many protests happening around the world in support of #BlackLivesMatter. The protests are seeking justice for George Floyd and the many other African American victims of police brutality.

In a since-deleted video posted to Instagram, she allegedly shared footage of protesters and people looting. Del Rey allegedly zoomed in on the protesters, leaving their identities exposed.

Various other musicians, including Tinashe and Kehlani, called Del Rey out, letting her know the dangers of the post.

“.@LanaDelRey please remove your instagram post it’s dangerous as f–k and a very poor choice of moments to post,” Kehlani wrote in a since-deleted tweet.

“by all means protest, but DO NOT endanger people with your very massive platform. oh and turn your f–kin comments on man.”

Tinashe also took to Twitter, writing, “@LanaDelRey why the fuck are you posting people looting stores on your page literally WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM.”

She then thanked Lana for reportedly deleting the video.

However, Kehlani later said that Lana allegedly re-posted a version of the offending video in which protestors’ faces were still visible.

“i was told the post was deleted and that was my point so i deleted the tweet but i guess it’s not deleted it’s just reposted?” Kehlani wrote.

“leaving it up on my story but hopefully if she gets enough dm’s she will take it completely down.”

Lana Del Rey faced huge backlash last month following a post in which she called out several Black female artists and hit back at claims she was “glamorizing abuse”.

“Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, fucking, cheating, etc,” she wrote, “can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dancing for money – or whatever i want – without being crucified or saying that I’m glamorising abuse???????”

Following criticism, Del Rey doubled down on her message, saying that she’s “not the enemy” and “definitely not racist.”

In another Instagram post, she announced that her new album is titled ‘Chemtrails Over The Country Club’ and will be out September 5.

There’s No Such Thing as ‘Comic Accurate’ in the MCU, According to Fans




Many times, when something odd happens in a comic book movie or in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s defenders will say, “That’s how it is in the comics.” But on the other side of the page, when a superhero movie does something fans don’t like, a fan will say, “They should have kept it like it was in the comics.” 

In other words, it’s the same thing that happens whenever Hollywood adapts a work of literature, be it To Kill a Mockingbird or the Dark Phoenix saga. Because the printed page and the movie screen are not the same, changes are inevitable, necessary even. And there will always be someone who will object. 

What do fans say about MCU movies vs. comics?

As is often the case with comics arguments, the comics vs. movies debate came up on Reddit, with the original poster stating, “I don’t think the quality of MCU movies should be judged on how similar they are to the comics … My philosophy is more along the lines of, if they drastically change a storyline or character from the source material, and it’s great, then I’m all for it. I just wanna see other opinions on this.”

A number of other people actually agreed, with one person stating, “I never understood the ‘comic accurate’ argument when it comes to film. Once it’s off the page, it’s an adaptation so changes are inevitable.” 

Another person concurred with that specific point, saying “So many people are hung up on the films being ‘comic accurate’ that they can’t enjoy a variation that might actually be better than the original.” 

That said, some people differed, with one person arguing that if something great in the comics is changed to something less effective, then the change was pointless. In other words, it’s not that a change was done, it was how it was done. The stereotype of fans is that they’re a rabid bunch that will howl in protest if you dare change the sacred text of Stan Lee or the sacred images of Jack Kirby. 

Adaptation effects everything, even costumes

Fans have pointed out that the costumes in superhero movies are not accurate to the comics. Whereas the Spider-Man movies of the 2000s had a costume that was faithful to the comics, the tendency nowadays is to make a getup  that’s hipper and edgier that kids today won’t consider goofy. 

Take Scarlet Witch. In the comics, she wore a bright red pointed headdress that most women wouldn’t wear unless they were going to a costume party. So instead, Elizabeth Olsen gets a sleek, flowing red jacket. Now that previews of the upcoming Disney+ show WandaVision show Olsen in a comics-accurate headdress, fans go into analysis trying to figure out what it all means. Most fans are guessing that comics-accurate costume is a fantasy sequence. 

On Reddit, fans brought up Spider-Man as an example. One fan said adding a lot of high-tech Tony Stark tools to his costume isn’t really true to a typically low-tech character.

However you adapt or change something, it has to ring true, even if not what was on the page. 

How ‘wrong’ is a movie if they make changes? 

This debate was distilled in, of all places, the comic strip Fox Trot by Bill Amend. That strip included a preteen character named Jason who was unto all things uber-geeky like superheroes and the Lord of the Rings.

When the Rings movies were about to made, director Peter Jackson appeared in the comic as Jason and his friend Marcus tried to play Frodo and Sam. At one point, they ask Jackson a question.

Jason: Mr. director, sir? About this script .. it leaves some things out. 

Jackson: Boys, The Lord of the Rings is over 1,000 pages long. If we tried to include every tiny detail, we’d end up with a 40-hour film. Who wants that? 

Marcus: Figures our mouths would be too full of drool to answer. 

At the end of the day, fans will always complain about changes, no matter how well earned or how well-intentioned. Even as visual effects make it more feasible to visualize fantastical characters and plots, there will always be a push to ground a fantasy/superhero movie in the real world somehow.

That push/pull will always continue unless and until virtual reality lets a consumer create exactly the experience they want. We’re getting closer, but for better or worse, we’re not there. The only thing constant is change.

John Cusack is an actor perhaps most famous for his romantic comedies Say Anything, High Fidelity and Better Off Dead. He lives in Chicago, so when his city protested over the killing of George Floyd, Cusack took to the streets to document it. His Twitter feed is an hour by hour, street by street look at the scene in Chicago.

By Saturday, May 30, cities across the country had already protested for a day. Cusack took his first video at 1:22 PM of the streets of his city flooded with peaceful protestors.

His subsequent videos captured protestors chanting, “I can’t breathe,” which is what Floyd said while officer Derek Chauvin held his knee on Floyd’s neck in the video posted on May 25. In other videos, they chant, “Say his name. George Floyd.”

Cusack followed protestors to Chicago’s Trump Tower. Once there, he captured video of protestors spray painting “Abolish the Police” on a boarded up window. 

John Cusack saw the people of Chicago support one another

Amid the intensity of Chicago’s protest, Cusack also saw goodness. For example, in this photo, a first aid station helps a protestor by bandaging her hand.

The city also shut down Michigan Avenue by 5:15.

He said taking that video provoked some policemen to accost him on his bike.

After he rode away, Cusack filmed the police who ordered him away from afar.

Cusack continued to ride around the streets of Chicago. He documented Michigan State barricaded, looting of a beauty supply store and Whole Foods, Walls on Michigan Ave. torn apart. He estimated 15-20 smashed storefronts just from his travels.

Cusack went home at 11:17 p.m. When one person asked him how no one in Chicago recognized him, Cusack said he’d worn a face mask following COVID-19 safety guidelines. 

The morning of May 31, Cusack tweeted his analysis of the previous night.

“Many of police I talked to last night – understood rage of the protestors & did their best to deescalate during day & into night,” he wrote. “But After perimeter was set around trump tower & bridges raised -it got so fearful and violent – the dynamic changed rapidly into chaos.”
