KISS: Best band trademark portfolio of all time

Posted by ipelton on: April 9th, 2014

The band KISS will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this week. Is there any band with a more creative and more complete portfolio of trademarks? I don’t think so.

In my opinion, the Rolling Stones logo is the best rock band logo of all time. But as you will see below, KISS has much more than a great logo. It is great slogans. And makeup which is creatively registered (possibly they were the first makeup configuration registrations in the US) and protect not just live music but a variety of other goods and services that the band profits from. They even sponsor an Arena Football team, the LA KISS!

Here are some of the many KISS trademarks:

  • Trademark image
  • YOU WANTED THE BEST, YOU GOT THE BEST – Entertainment services, namely, live musical performances by a group
  •  Mark Image
  • KISSOLOGY
  • KISS ARMY
  •  – clothing namely, shirts, T-shirts, jackets and caps
  • – clothing namely, shirts, T-shirts, jackets and caps
  •  – clothing namely, shirts, T-shirts, jackets, and caps
  •  – toys, namely action figures, and dolls
  • – Toys, namely action figures, and dolls
  •  – sound recordings featuring music; sound and video recordings featuring music and musical performances

 

NOTE: Another interesting trademark is the unique shape of the building for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum.
