Marvel Vs Khrya Faith Wharton Over Crown Of Wakanda Trademark
Andrei Mincov's commentary on the original article
What's fascinating is not that Marvel lawyers are opposing this trademark application. What's fascinating is that they had to actually go that far. Turns out, Marvel never filed for WAKANDA in Class 25. All they have is a registered mark for WORLD OF WAKANDA in Class 16 (books) and allowed application for WAKANDA in class 28 (toys). Curiously, there is another pending WAKANDA trademark in Class 25. Marvel is notorious for ruthlessly protecting their intellectual property (as they should) but somehow they underdid it this time around.
