After making a surprise appearance and performing “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1,” at Kid Cudi’s Chicago show on Saturday (Nov. 4), Kanye West has got the internet buzzing by filing for four federal trademark applications for the name ‘YEEZY SOUND’.
Filed on November 2, 2017, the trademark gives West the right to use Yeezy Sound on everything from musical recordings and the “management of performing artists” to the “streaming of music, audio, images, video and other multimedia content,” retail stores and amusement park rides.
Streaming of music, audio, images, video and other multimedia content over the internet, mobile devices, wireless networks and other computer networks and electronic communications networks (Class 38);
Record production; music production; audio recording and production; videotape production; motion picture song production; production of video discs for others; recording studios (Class 41);
Downloadable musical sound recordings; downloadable video recordings featuring music (Class 9);
Retail stores, wholesale stores, mail order services, online ordering services and on-line retail store services, and retail store services available through computer communications and interactive television, all of the aforesaid featuring recorded product, music related items, audio-visual products, computer goods, software and games (Class 35)” via Tantalizing Trademarks
Whether YEEZY SOUND is a potential new streaming service, a new record label or even a new Yeezy album, the good news is that Kanye will have to begin to use the trademarks soon in order to retain ownership.
