Meryl Streep applies to trademark her name
    2018-January-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Multi-award-winning screen actress Meryl Streep has applied to trademark her name to stop others from exploiting it.

The application, filed with the U.S. Trademark Office, would give her exclusive rights to the use of her name in the entertainment industry.

Celebrities are increasingly turning to the law to protect their names from unauthorized commercial use.

But the 68-year-old performer is further along in her career than most who have done so.

They include rapper 50 Cent, football-and-fashion super-couple David and Victoria Beckham and heiress and socialite Paris Hilton.

Unusually, rather than blocking the production of merchandise such as perfume, clothes or toys from using Meryl Streep’s name, the application refers only to “live, televized, and movie appearances” as well as “speaking engagements” and “autograph* signings.”

But it does block others from using her name for websites about films and the film industry.

Meryl Streep isn’t even Meryl Streep’s real name. She was originally Mary Louise Streep.

But it is under the name Meryl that she has achieved worldwide fame with roles in more than two dozen films including “Kramer vs Kramer,” “Sophie’s Choice,” “The Iron Lady” and her latest movie “The Post” in which she plays 1970s newspaper editor Katharine Graham.
