NO..."PURPLE RAIN" ENERGY DRINK NOT HAPPENING

NO..."PURPLE RAIN" ENERGY DRINK NOT HAPPENING

In an effort to sell their product, a company tried to get a hold of Prince's biggest album name and didn't win. JHO Intellectual Property Holdings sought to register the mark PURPLE RAIN for dietary and supplemental energy drinks and for “Energy drinks; Isotonic drinks; Non-alcoholic drinks, namely, energy shots, ‘Sports drinks.’”  The registration was opposed by Paisley Park Enterprises, LLC and NPG Records, LLC, who, wanted to protect Prince’s image, name, and likeness. The term “Purple Rain” was associated with Prince. PURPLE RAIN was a 13X platinum album and was the title of an Academy-award-winning movie scored by and starring Prince. Again, this is an example of trying to use something which belongs to "our" culture. Good for Prince.
