Kim Kardashian is trying to copyright her bum. The reality star is reportedly upset that “Internet bottom sensation” Jen Selter has been posting photos of her own large posterior on Instagram. The Guardian Lost in Showbiz blog reports “To Los Angeles, where Lost in Showbiz learns that a landmark court case may be brewing. It derives this knowledge from a feature in leading legal periodical Closer magazine, headlined KIM KARDASHIAN FUMES OVER BOTTOM “COPYCAT”. We won’t go into too much detail here, because quite frankly, reading the whole article made Lost in Showbiz worry that civilization as we know it is doomed and that brimstone is going to start raining from the sky any minute.” According to Closer, “Kim thinks Jen copies all her poses … she is fuming as she feels her curvy bum is one of her most unique selling points and feels that Jen is just trying to cash in,” and “Insiders say Kim has sought legal advice to see if they can stop Jen.”
Can you trademark the particular curves of your rear end? Lost in Showbiz considers “the very real possibility that, somewhere in California, a crack team of lawyers may at this very moment be working around the clock to copyright buttocks on behalf of Kim Kardashian. You may say this is an entirely ridiculous scenario – we are all, God willing, born with buttocks, Kanye West’s wife can’t just carry on as if she personally invented the concept of having an arse. To which Lost in Showbiz can only respond: do you know how much money these people have? They can bankroll the best legal minds in America! Frankly, if anyone can copyright the concept of buttocks, it’s the West-Kardashians.” If she does succeed in legally owning the rights to the idea of a bum, will it be called the Kardass©?
