An eagled eyed fan on one of the Facebook groups has spotted the status of the Sugababes trademark has changed


https://tmdb.eu/trademark/009079377/eu/en/sugababes

The status is now "Registration cancellation pending"


This means that either crown has requested a cancellation of the trademark (probably in negotiations with Keisha) or Keisha's evidence submission to the EU was f***ing solid gold plated shit that suggests Crown applied for the trademark under false circumstances and should never have been the legal owner of it (i.e. Crown & the replacements never had the rights to the name. I had been thinking that any contract that gave up rights to the name that was signed before the origibabes all turned 18 would be easily contested in court under English Common Law)

Done some digging.

Keisha has filed a cancellation order on Crown's trademark on the grounds that they haven't used it in 5 years. The EUTM have accepted Keisha's claim under the relevant set of rules and Crown have until 8/4/17 to prove to the EUTM that they have been using it within the last 5 years. Failure to submit evidence means the trademark will automatically be revoked. They'll also revoke if there are no "proper reasons for non-use".

Freedom was released 25th September 2011 meaning it's more than 5 years since any activity under the Sugababes brand and Crown have basically no legitimate grounds to hold onto the trademark.

So the name will return to our lord and saviours hands allowing them to come back this year w00t.gif

KEISHA will come and save the day!

It'd be remarkable if they actually started releasing music under that name again. ohmy.gif

Love love love that Keisha is so hell bent on (rightfully) getting the Sugababes trademark - if she's fought this hard for the name it makes me excited as to what could possibly be in the pipeline.

Deadline is tomorrow and there has been no rebuttal submission by Crown as of yet. If nothing is received the trademark is automatically killed.

Keisha has also been very Keisha and tied her cancelation notice to the opposition Crown made to her application. If Crown lose the trademark then there is no opposition to Keishas trademark request and it will be granted.


Can almost taste the victory

Indeed! Probably won't find out until next week for sure, but there's no documents to show a submission by crown yet

So exciting for her!!

That depends. They aren't known for vigourous stage productions are they? Nothing stopping a pregnant siobhan sitting on the GMTV sofa chatting about the new babes album and getting compliments on how radiant she looks.

Sure we're now more likely to get music in 2018 but hey TIMW was recorded while Muts was pregnant and Tahlia wasn't that old when Push the Button was released

Crown have applied for an extension 🙃🙃🙃

Some bullshit about licensing agreements and taking time to produce evidence. Hope they're denied. Scum just need to give up the name once and for all

I'm sure Keisha's beyond happy about Shiivy-Shov's news though.
