From Kanye West to Billie Eilish: Celebrities With NFT Trademarks

Of course, just about anyone can apply for a trademark. This doesn’t mean that each and every idea or product will come to fruition. Still, these trademarks show how NFTs are becoming even more mainstream.

Considering all this, we’ve put together a list of some of the most notable figures looking to secure patents for metaverse-related products. While some of the applications indicate how these celebrities intend on expanding their brand’s reach, others are more obscure. Here’s a breakdown. 

Kanye West, the celebrity-rapper who once posted a hand-written letter to his Instagram account which read, “Do not ask me to do a f*cking NFT,” seems to be getting ready to do f*cking NFTs. In the post, which has since been deleted, West — AKA Ye — ended the letter with an incredible about-face, writing, “Ask me later.”

Well, it seems to be “later.”

We’re gonna let Ye finish, but we expect him to come out with some of the best NFTs of all time. 

The patent applications show that fans will be able to purchase downloadable video game software, computer software programs featuring in-game resources, and other goods for use in online virtual worlds. 

On April 19, football (i.e. American Soccer) legend David Beckham’s venture capital firm DB Ventures Limited filed for three separate trademark applications with the USPTO, which are geared toward digital tokens, virtual clothing like footwear and headwear, and virtual entertainment events. 

Beckham isn’t the only one in the football world to do so. French football club Paris Saint-Germain, whose ranks include megastars like Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé, applied for trademarks covering NFT-backed multimedia, crypto wallets, and virtual sports gear. 

One of the more sensitive and controversial entries on this list is the late Notorious B.I.G. Though Biggie died in 1997, Notorious B.I.G. LLC recently filed three trademark applications for “The Brook,” the gamified metaverse that claims it will transport users to the streets of 90s Brooklyn and immerse them in the hip-hop heritage and culture that influenced the artist’s life and work.  

One of the filings, submitted under the title “Chuck Coin,” covers “collectible coins and tokens for use in online and virtual worlds,” “digital currency,” and “non-fungible tokens.” Considering another of the filings includes rights “for providing access to […] non-downloadable software for use in electronically trading, storing, sending, receiving, accepting and transmitting digital currency,” we might see an NFT marketplace and native currency based around the legendary martial artist, film, and TV star in the near future.
