Rihanna's 'Robyn' Trademark Request Could Be Blocked By DC Comics

Rihanna's 'Robyn' Trademark Request Could Be Blocked By DC Comics

Rihanna keeps it casual and comfy while exiting a friend’s hotel on Monday (May 18) in New York City.

It was recently announced that the 27-year-old “American Oxygen” singer was trying to trademark the word “Robyn,” which is her first name, with the purpose of “providing on-line non-downloadable general feature magazines.” However, DC Comics has requested that the trademark be denied because it is too similar to Batman’s sidekick Robin.

    Not gonna happen! There’s the singer Robyn. You don’t go by that name, therefore you have no rights to it. #BYEFELICIA

    that sounds incredibly moronic. Some Singers are so dumb.

    She should just trademark Rihanna instead of Robyn. She doesn’t even use her real first name.

  • Jenny from the flop

    Lmfao what’s up with these celebrities thinking they own their names when they didn’t invent it. Honey, maybe you have thought about that before you went with the name “Rihanna”. Nobody knows you as Robyn so sit your a** down

  • Jan

    First Kendal and Kyle Jenner wanted to trademark their names! Now Rihanna with Robyn??? B*tch have a seat?!? Who next? Hilary Clinton gonna trade mark Hillary! Tom cruise gonna trademark Tom?!?

    These b*tchies with their common a** names need to have a several seats! It should be blocked my common sense not DC comics!

  • Lee

    What a pompous jerk, she doesn’t even use her name to promote her product. I guess ppl would have to pay her to name their babies Robyn then…..

    So in love with her style… I don’t get why she would have to trademark her name in order to push content…

  • j k

    You idiots commenting didn’t get a thing. Instead of bitching at her, you should be bitching at DC Comics. THEY’RE the ones not letting her use the name Robyn. She only wanted to trademark a name for whatever business she’s starting, she isn’t registering to prevent people from using it!!

  • Jan

    Good I hope she gets blocked!!

  • Faithz

    Rihanna hang in there, the race isn’t won by the
    fastest runner, but by those who endure to the end!
