Why this petition matters

Started by Sono FUKUNISHI

Petition in Japanese

Petition in French

Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) filed trademarks for "Kimono Body", "Kimono Intimates" and "Kimono World". She has trademarked a word of huge cultural significance in Japanese culture.

As a Japanese, I wear Kimono everyday here in Paris, the city of Fashion.

I apreciate the fact people appreciate the beauty of it.

I do not wish to share the word with an underwear brand. "Kimono" means "clothing" in Japanese.

This is our culture, and I would like to show how many of us do not appreciate this!

Please sign the petition and together, we will take action to change this horrible cultural disrespect.

The registration stay « on going »

I re-open this case, in order to:

1. ask Kim Kardashian West to abandon "Kimono" related trademark registrations or use of the word « kimono »

2. make The USPTO recognizes "Kimono" as a symbol of Japan in order to avoid any further registration.

Please read the daily reports for more details.
