Olivia Jade's Trademark Application Gets Approved After She Fixes Punctuation Errors
The United States Patent and Trademark Office is moving forward with Olivia Jade's applications after she made the required edits
The YouTube beauty blogger, 19, whose parents Lori Loughlin and J. Mossimo Giannulli are facing legal trouble in the college admissions scandal, successfully edited her applications for both “Olivia Jade” and “Olivia Jade Beauty,” which were approved by U.S. Patent & Trademark officials on April 1, according to documents obtained by The Blast. Olivia can now move forward in the next steps in the process.
Olivia faced drama over the application after the United States Patent and Trademark Office sent Olivia a letter warning that her filing is in danger of abandonment due to poor punctuation and vague language in the application.
According to the documents obtained by PEOPLE, government officials wrote that the “applicant must correct the punctuation in the identification to clarify the individual items in the list of goods.”
The USPTO officials added, “Proper punctuation in identifications is necessary to delineate explicitly each product or service within a list and to avoid ambiguity. Commas, semicolons, and apostrophes are the only punctuation that should be used.”
The letter noted that the “identification of goods” she hopes to trademark “must be clarified” because the language “make up kits” with “moisturizer” and “concealer” is too broad. Products Olivia is looking to trademark include, “make up kits comprised of moisturizer, primer, concealer, foundation, make-up powder, make-up pencils, eye make-up, eyeshadow, eye liner, mascara, blush, highlighter, bronzer, make-up setting spray lipstick lip gloss, lip stains, make-up remover.”
It suggested adding the terms “skin moisturizer,” “facial concealer” and “make-up setting spray” as examples of more specific language to use.
Olivia’s mother and father are among dozens charged in an alleged college admissions scam involving elite colleges and universities including Yale, Georgetown, the University of Southern California and Stanford. Loughlin and Giannulli allegedly gave $500,000 to say Olivia and her sister Isabella Rose Giannulli were part of the rowing team when that was not true, the indictment states. Although it is unclear whether or not Olivia was aware of her parents’ involvement, her uber-popular Instagram and YouTube blogging business has taken a hit since the news broke.
Loughlin and Giannulli made their first appearance in court in Boston on April 3. During their 6-minute hearing, they waived their right for a preliminary hearing. They also agreed to several pretrial conditions, including surrendering their passports and no possession of firearms. Afterwards, Loughlin reached over to the next table to shake the hands of the prosecutors.
“Olivia is still distraught and embarrassed. She hasn’t been home much,” a source told PEOPLE of the popular YouTuber. “She is very angry with her parents. She just wants to figure out how she can rebuild her brand.”
The source added that she “blames her parents for everything.”
“She would have never gone along with it if she thought this would happen. Her thing is that she trusted her parents,” the source said. “Olivia spends most of her time with close friends and her boyfriend [model/musician Jackson Guthry].”
