Black Owned Skin Care Company Drops Lawsuit Against Kim Kardashian

Last year a Black spa owner filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Kim Kardashian accusing her of copying her branding for Kim's skin care line [click here if you missed that]. 

The case has been dropped...

Kim Kardashian’s battle with a New York esthetician over the name of her beauty brand has come to an end, has learned.
According to court documents obtained by, the company Beauty Concepts aka SKKN PLUS and SKKN+ have informed the court they are dropping all claims against the famous reality star and her companies.
Last year, Kardashian announced her KKW Beauty would be renamed SKKN By Kim. However, a New York esthetician named Cydnie Lunsford said the name infringed on her trademarks.
Lunsford founded a company called Beauty Concepts which she said owned the rights to the “SKKN+” trademark.
The reality star’s lawyer said he had attempted to work out a settlement with Lunsford but they refused to allow Kardashian to use the mark.
“We pointed out that running a small esthetician business in Brooklyn does not give it the right to shut down a global skincare line,” Kardashian’s lawyer added. “Since we’ve done nothing wrong, we stood our ground.”
Lunsford dismissed the case with prejudice meaning she cannot refile the case at a later date.

I wish she would have kept fighting, but I get it was a huge fight.

She probably settled quietly.

I hope she got paid. I would have just licensed it and then rode the coattails

KK is a culture vulture. Nothing new here. Would this be the same outcome if it was one of her friends. Lala Anthony, S Williams etc. Nijas swear their loyalty to this plastic body heifer.

They had to Pay Her Off. I wish that she could have fought this case in court though, so her Bulling would have been exposed.

@11:27 Kim's friends wouldn't dare over step their boundaries and try to be someone. Look at Khloe's friend, Malika. Malika drives a Rolls Royce given to her while living in a green wooden shack of a house and working at Khloe's assistant. She has no ambition to do more for herself because it'll steal Khloe's light.

Kim's friends always walk behind her and not with her. It says a lot.
The black lady more than likely accepted a healthy check for millions. When these matters are settled out of court a dismissal with prejudice is entered and an NDA is completed.
