DC Comics Fighting Rihanna Over “Robyn” Trademark


Recently singer Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, has begun steps to trademark her first name for an online magazine and DC Comics has stopped her from doing so, saying it sounds too similar to their character of the Boy Wonder, Robin.

DC Comics states some may get confused the two and the fact is DC already has a trademark on the name, because of that it seems like they want to prevent a possible loop hole Rihanna may have found. Personally I don’t see how it’s possible to get confused since one has the spelling with a Y and the other with an I.

According to the Pirates Thoughts if an agreement can’t be met they will have to go in front of the Trademark Office to see if Rihanna can trademark her name.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
