As Archewell is targeted with additional rulings, Meghan and Harry are losing support in the United States.
The US Patent and Trademark Office has reportedly issued red tape judgements against MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry’s Archewell brand.
According to reports, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been required to establish that they wish to sell clothing and books under the Archewell brand in the United States or face losing custody of the name. Meghan and Harry had previously registered for patent and trademark protection in the United States for their new media and charitable business. However, they must now demonstrate that they want to use the brand commercially by submitting documentation in the form of images.
The US Patent and Trademark Office reportedly warned them that they have six months to either disclose specifics of their Statement of Use or request an extension.
“Failure to file a required document outlined above during the appropriate time period will result in the abandonment of this application,” according to documents from the US office. The news comes after it was reported that the Sussexes’ trademark application for Archewell revealed the couple’s ambitious plans for the future.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex registered for company law protection in America for their philanthropic organization Archewell Foundation and their production company Archewell Audio.
They could explore a wide range of initiatives in the future, according to paperwork filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office, including live stage performances, live music performances, and live podcast performances.
The Sussexes, on the other hand, have been advised that their applications need to be clarified before they can be approved.
The couple described Archewell Audio as a company dedicated to the “creation, development, production, and distribution of podcasts, audio programs, music, and audiobooks” in their application.
The office responded, “Applicant must clarify that these are entertainment-based services.” The application stated that the company would produce “live podcast performances, live stage performances, live music performances, and live audio-book readings.” However, the office responded, “Applicant must clarify that these are entertainment-based services.”
The Sussexes have also been asked to offer further information about the online apps they aim to deliver for their Archewell Foundation application.
From June 25, Harry and Meghan have six months to respond, otherwise both applications would be discarded.
Since standing down as working royals in March, the Sussexes have been quite busy. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
