Do you remember Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera? Better known as “El Chapo Guzmán” (“Shorty Guzmán”), the Mexican drug lord who heads the Sinaloa Cartel. He filed a trademark registration!
Guzmán escaped from prison on 11 July 2015 by exiting through a tunnel that led to a nearby construction site. A spectacular escape. Last week though, we was recaptured by Mexican marines.
Investigations that led to the apprehension revealed the following surprising facts:
- El Chapo had a crush on Mexican actress Kate del Castillo;
- El Chapo filed for a trademark registration for “JOAQUIN ARCHIVALDO GUZMAN LOERA EL CHAPO GUZMAN”
The reason behind the trademark application, is that the drug lord told his lawyers he wanted to make a movie about his life. Hence, the request for a trademark registration for products in class 9 (dvd’s, etc.) in Mexico.
