WWE Files Several New Trademarks & Denied Several Other Trademarks

WWE recently filed several new trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Trademarks for “Mark Andrews“, “Oliver Carter“, & “Piper Niven” were filed on October 14th for wrestling and entertainment-related purposes.

HeelByNature.com reported that WWE recently had several trademark filings denied by the USPTO due to the lack of written consent from talent whose names were being trademarked. The trademarks denied were for “Drew Gulak”, “Pete Dunne”, and “Tony Nese.” It was also reported that a trademark for “Justus” was also denied for by the USPTO for similar reasons.

Al four trademarks reportedly were filed on July 30th and will be legally abandoned by the USPTO should WWE not be able to resolve their issues within the next six months.

A trademark for “Mia Yim” was also recently denied over similar issues. In an interesting note, Mia Yim herself recently filed a trademark for her ring name, outside of the company’s filing.
