Setback for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as Trademark Application for their Archewell Foundation is Rejected

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's application to trademark their new charitable organisation Archewell has been rejected. Documents seen by The Sun UK reveal that Harry and Meghan's application was turned down because they did not sign the document and they did not pay all the required fees. The paperwork, which was submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on March 3, was also said to be "too vague". The couple, whose documents were filed by the Delaware-based law firm Cobblestone Lane LLC, have since been sent an "Irregularity Notice" by the patent examiner at the USPTO. The examiner was asked to review the application for the non-profit organisation, which the couple had hoped to launch this year, on May 26 and has since sent a number of changes w...

The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) has been dragged to the Court of Appeal by the Lesbian Equality and Empowerment Initiative over its refusal to register the non-profit organisation.

Jared Polis Eas Frst Openly Gay Governor

Colorado Democratic US Rep. Jared Polis elected as his state’s next governor, becoming the nation’s first openly gay man elected to a governor’s mansion, CNN reports. Polis, an entrepreneur and five-term member of Congress from Boulder, beat Republican Walker Stapleton by six points in Colorado’s gubernatorial contest. But Polis’s splash into the history books is all the more significant considering the ugly track record of the state he has been elected to run.
