Miss Nepal USA, to be held in New York from September 23 to 25, has officially received the trademark in the United States. Miss Nepal USA has become the first and only one to get a trademark in the Nepali-related beauty pageant in the United States. Even though the application was submitted in October 2017, only now Miss Nepal USA has been able to formally get the trademark from the US Government's Trademark Office.
In the nature of beauty pageant, Miss Nepal US got trademark in entertainment category 41. The trademark certificate was first issued in June 2011 and used commercially in August. The number of the certificate is 6451176.
First in Nepali beauty pageant to get trademark
Earlier, an attempt was made to get the trademark in the name of Miss Nepal USA in 2011 but the attempt was not successful due to the claim of Miss USA. But later Miss USA agreed to the trademark by removing the letter A so that only Miss Nepal US would remain. After that, in February 2012, an attempt was made to register the trademark of Miss Nepal US, but it was not successful.
Founder Amit Shah is happy that Miss Nepal LLC has succeeded in getting the trademark of Miss Nepal USA for Nepali related beauty pageant in the United States. He also said that his 10-year-long effort was successful.
On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Miss Nepal USA, Miss Nepal USA will be organized in New York from September 23 to 25 with the annual celebration of Miss Nepal USA in New York.
