Is Beyonce's 7-Year-Old Daughter a 'Cultural Icon'?

Is Beyonce's 7-Year-Old Daughter a 'Cultural Icon'?

We all know that Beyonce deserves to get anything she wants, but now she wants to prevent a small business from using the two common words she chose to give her daughter for a name. Never mind that the business in question chose the name a few years before the kid was born. But Beyonce argues that her 7-year-old is a "cultural icon," and that means she now owns the rights to the color blue and the ivy plant, at least when they occur together. Read on for details.

Wedding planner Veronica Morales is disputing Beyoncé‘s claim that Blue Ivy Carter is a “cultural icon” in a trademark battle over the moniker, according to new court documents obtained by The Blast.

The “Formation” singer and husband Jay-Z have been trying to trademark their daughter’s name since 2012, and are battling Morales, who argues that she has been using the name Blue Ivy for her company long before the world knew about Blue Ivy Carter.

Morales filed a trademark for the moniker in 2012 to use it for her event planning business, which she first opened in 2009, according to the company’s Facebook page. Blue Ivy Carter was born Jan. 7, 2012.

Beyoncé, who is trying to trademark Blue Ivy Carter and not Blue Ivy, previously argued the woman’s company is a “small business, with just three regional offices and a handful of employees” and that her daughter is a “cultural icon.”

“[Morales’ claim] that consumers are likely to be confused between a boutique wedding event planning business and Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of two of the most famous performers in the world, is frivolous and should be refused in its entirety,” Beyoncé argued in court documents.

Now, Morales has fired back at the star’s claim that the 7-year-old is a “cultural icon,” stating: “Beyoncé’s company is trying to skirt the law, and recently argued that the 7-year-old Blue Ivy Carter is a ‘cultural icon’ in the United States. According to Wikipedia, a cultural icon ‘is an artifact that is identified by members of a culture as representative of that culture,’ such as apple pie, baseball, and the United States Flag.”
