Jake Paul Files Applications to Register JAKE PAUL, IT'S EVERYDAY BRO as Trademarks

Sometimes controversial actor and YouTube personality Jake Paul has been busy filing federal trademark applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office over the past two weeks. Or, more appropriately, his business entity 10 Digit Investments, LLC has been busy (this entity is listed as the owner of the trademark applications and the California Secretary of State website lists Jake Paul as a member or manager of the LLC).
Jake's business entity filed the most recent trademark application, for JAKE PAUL, on September 8th. That application covered a variety of goods and services, including:
  • Musical sound recordings (Class 9);
  • A variety of clothing items (Class 25);
  • Publicity services; promoting the interests of musicians, entertainers, artists, and social media personalities; advertising services, namely, promoting the brands, goods and services of others (Class 35); and
  • Entertainment services, namely, arranging and conducting live performances, personal appearances, television performances, and radio performances by an entertainer, social media personality and performing artist (Class 41).
Additionally, on September 1st, 10 Digit Investments, LLC filed a trademark application for IT'S EVERYDAY BRO, covering similar goods and services as well as bedding, linens, printed materials, and toys. Finally, on August 29th, Jake filed the first JAKE PAUL trademark application, covering bedding, linens, printed materials, and toys.

Noteably missing from the JAKE PAUL trademark applications is Jake's written consent to register his name as a trademark, which is required under Section 2(c) of the Trademark Act. See TMEP 1206.04. Before the JAKE PAUL trademark applications can mature to registrations (assuming everything else is in order), Jake will need to submit this written consent.

According to my quick search, these are the first federal trademark applications filed by Jake Paul and his business entity, 10 Digital Investments, LLC. Loeb & Loeb, a law firm based in Los Angeles and known for representing celebrities and entertainment clients, assisted Jake Paul with these trademark filings.
