Beyonce And Jay-Z Lose Trademark Battle For Blue Ivy Carter, But Have A Friend In President Obama [PHOTOS]
Speaking of BIC, the couple lost a trademark battle with Boston-based events planning company Blue Ivy Events, which has been in business since 2009.
According to a local Fox station, the company’s owner had to go to court to protect the name and won. The ruling states that the Carters have no legal rights to keep the name to themselves.
Rumor has it that Beyonce wanted to trademark her daughter’s name to start a line of baby products.
“We talk about the same things I talk about with all my friends. We talk about the kids,” Obama said. “I made sure that Jay-Z was helping Beyoncé out [with the baby] and not leaving it all to mom and the mother-in-law.”
Obama and the Carters have been friends “over the past several years,” and called B and Jay “good people.”
“Beyoncé could not be sweeter to Michelle and the girls,” Obama said. “The girls are big Beyoncé fans.”
