THEL Prince Harry lost a lawsuit against the Italian company Invicta. Yes, that of the iconic backpacks.
What binds i Dukes of Sussex to the brand symbol of several generations?
It all starts with the “Invictus Games”
In 2014 the Prince Harry inaugurated a sports competition for veterans with disabilitiesfrom the name “Invictus Games”. After the success of the first edition, it was also born a foundation – the Invictus Games Foundation – to support the creation of future editions.
But that’s not all. The prince also wanted to launch clothing, backpacks and gadgets, always linked to the Paralympic-style sporting initiative.
From there, the request of the Italian brand to block the registration of Harry’s trademarkbecause it could have generated confusion in the audienceused to associating the word “Invicta” with the Italian brand and its products.
The judge’s decision
Months ago it arrived the decision of the judge who actually accepted the request of the Turin brand (it arrived months ago but it has only just been made public). And the charity created by the Dukes of Sussex will have to pay 1600 pounds to the fashion company.
Background of the Dukes of Sussex with the Patent Office
This it is not Prince Harry’s first defeat on the trademark registration front. Already a couple of years ago, shortly after his farewell to the royal family, had to accept a “no” from Buckingham Palace about the possibility of doing Sussex Royal a brand. According to Buckingham Palace, in fact, they could not have used the word “royal” in their trademark. Especially after their choice of life …
Also Meghan does not seem to have an excellent relationship with the Patent and Trademark Office. That of the USA has in fact denied her the possibility of registering the name “Archetypes” (archetypes) that the Duchess wanted to assign to her first podcast series she edited on Spotify. According to the Patent and Trademark Office, in fact, no one can take exclusive possession of a commonly used word and so widespread.
