Kanye West made the name “YEEZY” a brand name, but apparently, he’s going have to fight for the trademark if he’s plans further expansion into clothing.
While the rap star has owned the “YEEZY” trademark for footwear since 2013, he was never able to acquire the rights for clothing.
According to TMZ, a Chinese company called Fujian Baby Network Technology Co. swooped in and filed for the “YEEZY” trademark for clothing.
While Kanye’s team tried to refile its application for YEEZY clothing, he was denied.
It’s currently unclear how this affects his YEEZY Season clothing line, or if Kanye has taken further action.
