Kylie Minogue won’t go down without a fight.
Last year, Kylie Jenner submitted an application to trademark her first name in connection with advertising services then went on her merry way plumping her lips and posting on Instagram. A year later, Minogue’s legal team responded with a resounding hell no. An Australian firm representing Minogue filed their opposition to the application, claiming it will confuse people and dilute Minogue’s brand.
In their counter, they label Jenner a “secondary reality television personality” who appears as “a supporting character” on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and remind us Jenner has faced scrutiny from African-American communities and disability rights groups.
Minogue responded to the ordeal by posting a lyric from her song “Light Years:”
Hello….. My name is KYLIE #lightyears

We’d like to remind you Minogue’s debut album, Kylie, was certified Gold in the United States, has sold over 65 million albums overall world-wide and has owned Kylie.com since 1996, one year before Jenner was even born.
