Olivia Jade Giannulli’s at risk of losing her beauty trademarks because of some poor punctuation. Her trademark woes come after her parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli were indicted for bribing their daughter into the University of Southern California.
According to The Blast, Olivia has been notified that her trademark applications for “Olivia Jade Beauty” and “Olivia Jade” are at risk of being abandoned. Her trademarks could be thrown out because they’re too broad and her punctuation is poor.
Officials from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office say that Olivia’s application for “make up kits” with “moisturizer” and “concealer” is too vague. Not only did the USPTO criticize Olivia’s ill-defined product description but they also criticize her poor punctuation.
“Proper punctuation in identifications is necessary to delineate explicitly each product or service within a list and to avoid ambiguity,” officials wrote according to The Blast. They also reminded the YouTuber that “commas, semicolons, and apostrophes are the only punctuation that should be used.”
Olivia will have one more chance to resubmit her applications. This is the second time she has been warned by the USPTO and she will need to resubmit her corrected application in a timely manner or the office will throw it out.
The warning was given to Olivia just days after her parents were indicted. Loughlin and Giannulli paid $500,000 in bribes to have Olivia and her older sister Isabella Rose admitted to USC at student-athletes.
This is the first bad news Olivia has received since the bribery scandal.
Olivia has lost her recent partnership with Sephora Collection. Shortly after the college admittance bribery scandal, Sephora announced that they would stop selling Olivia’s highlight and bronzing palette.
“After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately,” a spokesperson said.
It also didn’t help that people flooded the reviews of the palette and criticized Sephora for working with Olivia.
Filling out applications is not Olivia’s forte. According to the affidavit, Olivia didn’t fill out her own formal USC application because she was too “confused.” Her parents ended up paying someone to fill out the application for her. They should do the same for her trademark applications.
