Actress Angelina Jolie participates in a news
conference at the National Press Club in Washington, Thursday, April 26,2007.
Angelina Jolie is fiercely battling to save daughter Shiloh's name from being
Jewelery-design and perfume company, Hors La Monde Corp., is naming its most
recent fragrance Shiloh, but the Tomb Raider has got in touch with the US Patent
and Trademark Office to combat the plans.
"The notice of opposition alleges that you will be damaged by the pending
trademark. Angelina must feel that people applying for 'Shiloh' need to get her
consent," said New York trademark attorney Thomas M. Wilentz, as saying.
Hors La Monde owner, Symine Salimpour, applied for trade marking the name
Ever since, Jolie's New York lawyer has received two 90-day extensions to
arrange a case opposing Hors L¨¢ Monde's use of Shiloh.
"The name is completely unrelated. Symine is a citizen of both France and
Israel, but she identifies strongly with her Israeli roots - it's a spiritual
thing for her. Shiloh is a Hebrew name that means 'his gift'," a source told
Life and Style Weekly magazine.
"The fragrance has been in development in France for the last two years and
has a woody smell with a hint of patchouli flower," the source added.
Representatives for both Jolie and Salimpour refused to comment.
