The business was a one-individual shop offering facials from a solitary Brooklyn area. The salon had no signage and was by arrangement as it were.

As far as anyone is concerned, Beauty Concepts sold no items under the SKKN+ name,” Rhodes claims. “Excellence Concepts asked that we drop the SKKN name. Obviously we said no. Excellence Concepts then tested Ms. Kardashian’s brand name applications at the USPTO. Obviously, the USPTO dismissed Beauty Concepts’ own SKKN+ mark saying that ‘skkn’ simply signifies ‘skin.'”

“Unafraid, Beauty Concepts then, at that point, attempted to cause its business to appear to be more than it was – it rented another retail facade, transformed it site, and so on,” Rhodes asserts. “A few times we connected with Beauty Concepts, attempting to track down a reasonable way to concurrence. We brought up that maintaining a little esthetician business in Brooklyn doesn’t give it the option to close down a worldwide skincare line.

Eventually, Beauty Concepts didn’t actually draw in with us past requesting huge amount of cash. Since we’ve done nothing out of sorts, we held fast.”

In the claim, Beauty Concepts asserts that Kardashian and Coty “have utilized their distinction to promptly make extraordinary business progress and brand mindfulness with the items sold under the SKKN BY KIM brand.”

The claim further contends that, “Were it not for the determined encroachment and usurpation of the SKKN+ Brand … Ms. Lunsford’s and Beauty Concepts’ development direction and future achievement were guaranteed. They are presently in risk because of the tenacious and ill-advised activities of the Defendants.”

Excellence Concepts is requesting that this suit go to preliminary by jury, and is requesting that the court grant them “harms, including, however not restricted to, compensatory harms, legal harms, compensation, spewing of benefits, improved harms, corrective harms, and prejudgment and post-judgment interest.”

Moreover, the claim is requesting that Kardashian and Coty “pay for and carry out a mission of restorative publicizing and to spew its not well gotten gains and to pull out all USPTO brand name applications highlighting SKKN or SKKN BY KIM.”

In his explanation to ET, Rhodes claims, “We think the case is less about the law of brand names and more about attempting to use a settlement by taking steps to hurt Ms. Kardashian’s name and notoriety. That won’t work and we anticipate communicating our perspective in court.”
