According to an insider, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's trademark bid for Archewell has taken a hit.
In their application for the rights to Archewell Audio, Harry and Meghan said the firm was for the ‘creation, development, production and distribution of podcasts, audio programmes, music, and audio books.’
However, their application was denied as the trademark office insists that all applicants must clarify that the firm is solely for entertainment-based services.
The application also reiterated that the company would create:
Live podcast performances, live stage performances, live music performances, and live audio-book readings.
The office insists on the need to specify the nature of the ‘live stage performances’ in order for license permission to be granted to them.
Harry and Meghan have six months to respond or both applications will be cancelled.
