Beauty concept owner sues Kim Kardashian for trademark infringement SKKN

Just weeks after Twitter discussed the similarities between a black-owned business and Kim KardashianSkincare line SKKN, owner of Beauty Con Concept, has filed a lawsuit against the reality TV star for trademark infringement.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the owner of Beauty Con Concept says she “owns the rights to “SKKN+” and says Kim’s use of the moniker on her beauty products is confusing customers”.

Kim’s team denied the allegations of infringement and stated “this lawsuit is not what it seems”.

Michael Rhodes, Kim’s attorney continued:

SKKN BY KIM is the new brand following Ms. Kardashian’s successful KKW line. Based on independent research and development, her company filed a trademark application for SKKN BY KIM to protect products bearing the new trademark. This has prompted the current takedown effort.

Rhodes went on to say:

We applaud Ms. Lunsford for becoming a small business owner and following her dreams. But that doesn’t give her the right to falsely claim that we did wrong. In its letter, Beauty Con Concept claims ownership of a logo made up of SKKN+ and has just filed a trademark application for that logo. This business is a one-stop shop that provides facials from a single location in Brooklyn. The shop is unsigned and only comes by appointment. To our knowledge, Beauty Con Concept does not sell any products under SKKN +

He also stated:

Beauty Con Concept asked us to drop the SKKN name. Of course, we said no. Beauty Con Concept then challenged Ms. Kardashian’s trademark applications at the USPTO. Unsurprisingly, the USPTO rejected Beauty Con Concept’s own SKKN+ trademark saying that “skkn” simply means “skin”. Undeterred, Beauty Con Concept then tried to make its business seem better than it already is – it leased out a new storefront, changed its website, etc.

Currently, both are in court.
