What rock have you been living under to not see his family doesn’t deal with her with the exception of Omarr? She wasn’t even invited to the family memorial and didn’t acknowledge her at all in the memorial program. The family and the estate lawyers are well aware of how Prince felt about her after their divorce and are not in favor of her trademarking the name and logo for his charitable foundation.

Then why did the estate drop its opposition without prejudice? I’m surprised LM isn’t all over this.


All I can say is, keep on watching the story unfold but there was nothing innocent about this woman going after the Love 4 One Another trademark days after this man’s death. Imagine the mentality of someone sitting at home concocting that plan. To clarify, the opposition wasn’t dropped by the estate, it was pretty much dropped by the trademark office for the estate not responding in a timely fashion. But as I said before, keep on watching the story unfold.

From the records I read I thought M2 didnt respond to the Estate's Opposition?

I'll take it nobody knows. She files to get possession of the trademark, Comerica finds out or is informed, they file a suit, she doesn't do anything to oppose it, they drop it, the register office drops it, and the trademark is...what? Still hanging out there?

Hopefully the estate and family know about the new trademark application by IAPW that was published on December 5, 2017. They have 30 days to oppose. All his trademarks are his intellectual property, even the ones that were abandoned, and I would think that unless the estate is going to use them, they would be permanently retired by the trademark office and NO ONE could use.

Welp... so much for that... the estate stepped up.

Of note, seems like the estate has filed a trademark for the memoir this year, as well. http://tmsearch.uspto.gov...0n3r6.9.16

Well, I went to those links and the dates on those links vs. the dates that are being said in this thread not the same. Seems to me somebody has access to more information but is keeping it to themselves for some reason.

NVM, I see the Dec17 date actually came from this (Results as of 12/05/2017 03:05 PM) as opposed to the last time papers had actually been filed. So it's basically back a square on, she touched it, they popped her fingers, she let it go, they left her alone. It's where it was.

14 more days until M2 becomes the owner of the Love for One Another trademark. Any ideas why the estate has not objected yet? That is Prince’s charity legacy and it should be HIS family’s legacy and not Mani’s, Eric’s and their family.

It could very well be she was granted Love4OneAnother in the divorce.

If true, M2 owns the land across the street from PP.

You mean upon his death L4OA would be hers? I never heard of anyone negotiating for intellectual property in a divorce! A lot of the categories for L4OA trademarks were not renewed in 2005/2006. Possible she didn’t file the paperwork and let these lapse?

I did, that's how I found this. That serial # says L4OA is cancelled but this one says L4OA is active as of July, 2017. So after poking around I see this is the business address. See, now that L says about 20-30 people knew of Prince's plans I have to ask, was she one of those people? It's obvious the Estate Admin knew she did this, and they went into action to stop it and then stopped. Did the family tell Comerica to stop? shrug

I’m not sure but I did find another filing for #give100 applied for on 4/20/2016 the day before he passed!!!! Did she know he was not going to make it? The color Purple is claimed as a feature of the trademark. The first time she used that hashtag was on his 2016 bday. Just does not sit right with me what she is doing under the radar 👎👎👎

Oh. Hmmm. Well, if she already owed L4OA, then she didn't just run up and take it right after he passed. Not sure. Maybe the 4/20 date is a coincidence, sometimes weird crap happens. Definitely a big question mark.

The only living people connected to Love 4 One Another are Mayte and Kirk. Prince never removed Mayte as VP of the charity. Hope that clears that up.

Prince and Kirk Johnson were the sole directors of Love 4 One Another at the time of the last IRS filing (2007). I’m curious as to how long Mayte stayed on after the divorce. Anyone know?

LOL if you click on the goods and services IAPW is applying for class 041 International which includes a website with blogs for music,etc. click on prosecution history and last entry on July 25, 2017 shows NOA emailed - SOU (Statement of Use) required from applicant. Not sure why SOU was not provided. Looks like IAPW applied again for this class and that is the active one with January 25 deadline. This would be in direct conflict with any website the heirs would want to create to showcase Prince’s work so again, not sure why IAPW is not being shut down. other classes IAPW applied for include clothing, yoga pants, etc. basically branding Love 4 One Another for her charity causing confusion in the marketplace IMO

There has got to be connections to Prince who read this site..Family members,Estate people etc..I hope they keep M2 from further profiting off P.She received millions,a house in Toronto,plus all the coat tail riding her now husband is doing..
IMHO from what we've heard and read..the only one fooled is Omarr? He needs to think about this as taking $ out of his pocket..then he may see the light..You don't see other family members or his close friends buddying up with her..They must..IMHO have her number.She makes M1 look like a saint..At least she didn't want 42k a month in alimony,she was pregnant twice by him..and M2 " befriended" him while knowing he was married..M1 claims she apologized..Still.. Leopards do not change their spots.
