Aishwarya Rai to get US patent for her name

Married to Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai is considered one of the world’s most beautiful women. She is in the final stages of obtaining a U.S. trademark for her name from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, a federal agency under the U.S. Department of Commerce.
Most likely, Aishwarya Rai will be the first Bollywood star to get the coveted USPTO trademark.
Getting the Aishwarya Rai trademark from the USPTO is important as the actress steps up her involvement in Hollywood films. The USPTO trademark will also deter others from profiting on the Aishwarya Rai name online or offline and make it easier for the actress to take legal action against alleged infringers.
Aishwarya Rai, is obtaining the trademark from the USPTO in two broad categories – advertising and entertainment services (personal appearance by a celebrity fashion model).
Aishwarya Rai applied for the Service Mark (to use the correct term) on March 28, 2006. Her application was published for opposition in February this year and notice of allowance mailed in May after receiving no oppositions. The Serial Number of her trademark application with the USPTO is 76657645. Once the process is completed, the USPTO will issue her an official Registration Number and Registration Date.
The Bollywood actress filed for the USPTO Service Mark via her U.S. representative and international manager Simone Sheffield.
