00:03
The Yes. Hey guys.
00:11
Welcome back to Lincoln Bio.
00:13
I am Jenny and I'm Jess and I am sure you can
00:18
guess who I'm filling in for because let's just say our brothers
00:24
Alejo to have his baby.
00:26
Congratulations to Aleo New dad and Adrian.
00:31
Of course, Adrian doing all the hard work.
00:34
Yes. Well, let's jump into it.
00:38
We got a show to do that for you guys.
00:41
We have a situation with the node dad,
00:44
Carol G ES compro Medida,
00:46
Joan Boada Pharmacy hacks and Rihanna's visit to India.
00:51
And we're also talking about our men,
00:54
more Chismosa than women with Jay Valentino.
00:58
Why she and and Teu are so cheap.
01:02
How to be a New Latino dad with Rafael Gomez?
01:06
Plus the rock copyrights his phrases.
01:10
Let's jump into it.
01:15
If it's not skimmers at gas stations,
01:17
it's the fake gift cards at Target.
01:20
Oh, I hate when that happens.
01:21
Russian speaking, ransomware gang alpha has disrupted prescription processing systems across
01:28
the US leaving millions facing the choice of paying inflated prices or
01:33
foregoing vital medication. Pharmacies unable to verify insurance due to the
01:39
breach are demanding full payment leading to out of pocket costs.
01:43
Surpassing $1000 for some.
01:46
So apparently hackers are fucking around with our medications.
01:50
Now, dude, the last thing that I would expect like
01:52
what do you mean we're already getting overcharged?
01:54
Our health care system shit.
01:56
And you wanna charge me more,
01:57
leave me alone. Go make money honorably.
02:01
Honestly, can pinch you guys could get really far in life
02:06
Hey, imagine that your Abuela or mom's medication get scammed
02:10
and now you have to borrow money to keep them from dying
02:12
Like imagine that I'm no,
02:14
hold on, go scam them billionaires or something.
02:16
Like don't scam the common people.
02:22
You know what Jenny?
02:23
If there's anything I've learned is that everything has a price and
02:26
that's exactly what I think Rihanna thinks as well.
02:28
You know, somebody got her out of the house and back
02:31
on the stage and you'll never believe who it was.
02:34
So billionaire industrialist Mukesh Ambani who by the way is worth $112
02:41
billion. No big deal.
02:43
He is helping his youngest son,
02:45
Anant get married, right?
02:47
He's hosting celebs and heads of state for a three day wedding
02:51
event that's happening in July.
02:53
Like it's not even happening right now.
02:55
The celebration is just starting.
02:56
This is like the pre wedding.
02:58
I wanna know. Does he have any more sons?
03:00
You tell him girl,
03:01
that's, that's what I wanna know.
03:02
I want a big ass Indian wedding and I want people.
03:04
She's smart. She's funny.
03:06
She's talented she's got her own business like let's fucking go.
03:10
And I like Indian music.
03:11
There you go. Rihanna is reportedly getting $6 million for the
03:15
appearance. Honestly, that would make anybody get out of bed
03:18
get that bag like big time.
03:21
This is nothing new to the Ambani family who always balls out
03:25
when it comes to weddings.
03:26
Other family members in recent years were treated to pre wedding celebrations
03:30
from Beyonce, Beyonce Cold Play and the chain smokers like they're
03:38
freaking bringing Coachella to India basically like what this is Indian Cella
03:43
It's not in India no more.
03:44
It's in India and while $6 million is already insane.
03:51
Rihanna may have gotten an even bigger deal for the performance because
03:54
she's, she's a like a true entrepreneur,
03:57
true ge because the Ambani family is actually the owner of reliance
04:02
retail group who bought out the rights to Sephora's business in India
04:06
And as we all know Fenty Beauty,
04:08
Rihanna's makeup brand is in Sephora stores.
04:12
So Sephora is coming to India.
04:15
Rihanna is one step ahead of the game already meeting the family
04:17
making sure that you know,
04:18
her products are front and center.
04:20
As soon as you walk into Sephora India,
04:22
you best believe that the Rihanna Fenty Beauty Display is gonna be
04:27
and honestly, I can't wait to see it.
04:29
Me too. Work,
04:30
work, work, work,
04:31
work, work. That's all I know.
04:36
Honestly, Brat Cross,
04:42
the father of a child who died in the Uvalde shooting said
04:45
he was arrested in a town meeting for saying the word fuck
04:49
cross reportedly yelled at Mariano Paragas,
04:52
a commissioner who was the acting police chief.
04:54
At the time of the shooting,
04:56
the grieving dad confronted Paragas saying there were 8 to 9 students
04:59
still alive in that classroom and you walk the fuck away.
05:03
The people holding the meeting told the dad to watch his language
05:06
and he replies, language,
05:08
language, language. My child is fucking dead and you know
05:10
what? He's fucking great dude and honestly watch his language.
05:15
Y'all should have been watching his kid.
05:18
Police escorted cross out of the meeting and arrested him.
05:21
In response. Cross said on Tik Tok,
05:23
they're more worried about me saying the word fuck than they are
05:26
that my son and others were murdered.
05:28
And I freaking agree.
05:30
The Uvalde County Judge Bill Mitchell said that cross was escorted out
05:34
because he continued to use profane language.
05:36
Commissioner Ronald Garza said there must be some respect but he absolutely
05:41
understands the dad's anger.
05:43
I'm sorry, but he wasn't the one being disrespectful.
05:46
It was the people who,
05:47
who arrested him and and made this whole meeting about his profanity
05:53
which the meeting was supposed to be about the kids,
05:57
the safety of the kids that,
05:58
that they were, it just pisses me off to be Joan
06:03
Boada. One of the seven men accused of attacking two police
06:07
officers in New York City in January has been cleared of all
06:10
charges. You may remember when Boada,
06:13
a Venezuelan immigrant and seven others were arrested for allegedly attacking police
06:19
outside a shelter near Times Square on January 27th.
06:23
After that, Boada made a court appearance and gave two middle
06:27
fingers to reporters. And then the right wing had a field
06:31
day congressman Anthony de esposito wrote on X about Boa's photo.
06:36
We feel the same way about you holler at the cartels and
06:40
have them escort you back then.
06:42
Republican congressman, Mike Collins of Georgia replied,
06:45
or we could buy him a ticket on Pinochet Air for a
06:49
free helicopter ride back.
06:51
Oh, shit. Isn't that a reference to the Chilean Dictator
06:54
Pinochet? He's the one that would throw like his opponents off
06:57
of helicopters. Well,
06:59
Boada was mistaken for another suspect and has been exonerated as a
07:06
participant in this assault.
07:09
Look, if I was mistaken for a suspect and thrown in
07:12
jail because of something best believe I'm gonna be walking out like
07:14
this is Caro G engaged to fade.
07:21
Fans think that Caro G is engaged to alleged boyfriend fade or
07:24
at least she is compro meti.
07:27
First of all, hold up before I get into it.
07:29
Who picked this picture of my girl Carol like y'all did her
07:33
so dirty. Like it's just,
07:37
it's not doing anybody any favors and this feels really personal.
07:41
So I'm gonna have a word with whoever picked us one later
07:45
Back to the story during the singer's concert in Guatemala
07:48
City on Saturday. She read out loud an insane poster from
07:52
fan. It said Carol,
07:54
my husband wants to leave me for you.
07:57
Carol G laughed at the poster and said,
07:58
but I'm already com from Merida and if he's gonna leave you
08:03
for me, find someone else,
08:04
period. La Vita has spoken but honestly compro meda in Spanish
08:10
like you can't really take that as a literal translation.
08:14
I feel like it can mean so many things like you're committed
08:16
to something. Exactly.
08:17
Like that's what I would say.
08:18
Oh, no. Yes.
08:19
Compro me like, I remember when I would go to Mexico
08:21
and I had a,
08:22
like a boyfriend back then like,
08:24
you know, guys would try to like hit on me like
08:26
and, and then I'd be like,
08:28
oh no. Yeah.
08:28
Yes. You know,
08:30
it just means that you're already like involved with someone.
08:34
It doesn't like, don't take it for the literal translation of
08:36
like I'm engaged. So I don't think so if she's not
08:39
wearing a ring on her finger and she's not posting about it
08:42
like there's no way also,
08:44
it kind of su no disrespect to those who get married or
08:47
get engaged quickly. But when,
08:49
you know, when you know,
08:50
I guess that's all I'm gonna say.
08:53
We keep just picking at the wound here.
08:55
So girl, this is not personal but I just see that
09:00
like she's just living her life,
09:01
let her enjoy it.
09:02
Don't be putting words in her mouth like but you know what
09:06
I love how she looks genuinely happy.
09:10
Absolutely. Like it gives me hope like Carol,
09:13
you give me hope.
09:14
Manana. Sera Bonito.
09:16
I remember when you were saying Manana Serra Bonito.
09:18
Yeah. Manana. Yes,
09:19
Bonito. I'm so glad I am so glad Carol Alejos babies
09:28
I I wanna say the baby's here already.
09:30
I think so too.
09:31
So Alejos, I saw the Alex.
09:37
This is not Isabella by the name.
09:38
His baby is a fake baby.
09:40
Fake baby. Alejo is not here to be with his baby
09:49
And yeah, you know,
09:50
Alejo is one of the kind of guys that he's like always
09:52
active on social media.
09:53
He's been awfully quiet lately which kind of leads us to suspect
09:57
that baby Izzy is here.
10:00
And we couldn't be more excited.
10:01
So since we know that being a parent,
10:04
it's hard. I don't know how people our age are
10:07
doing it or how our parents did it.
10:09
I feel like there's just so much that I'm doing now that
10:12
I don't have time.
10:13
I don't have time.
10:14
And then I can only imagine adding a like a kid to
10:17
the equation. It's a lot.
10:18
I admire your parents big time.
10:20
I'm at thea by association and I feel like that's enough for
10:23
me. Like let me,
10:24
yeah, you keep,
10:25
let's play around. I won't change your diaper,
10:27
but I'll give you back to your mom for like the hard
10:29
stuff. You're gonna start crying.
10:30
Here you go. Time for mommy.
10:32
That's the beauty of being.
10:35
I feel like millennial dads and the way that they're raising their
10:37
Children are just much more present and so different than,
10:40
you know, joining us to talk about fatherhood is Rafael Gomez
10:45
Hi, Rafael.
10:49
How's it going? How you doing?
10:52
Good. So,,
10:54
you know, there's a recent study by the Pew Research Center
10:56
that found that what exactly what we were just talking about.
10:58
Millennial dads are spending up to three times more time with their
11:02
family, with their Children than previous generations.
11:05
Would you say that this is true?
11:07
Like, do you spend more time with your kids at home
11:09
than your dad did with you?
11:10
Oh, yes, I spend like pretty much all day with
11:13
like my kid and my,
11:15
all the time, especially now that I'm doing like a content
11:17
like videos like that's like my job,
11:18
social media, I'm able to be here like 24 7.
11:21
So it's like, it's amazing what a blessing to be able
11:25
to 24 7. What would you say you are most afraid
11:29
of fucking up when it comes to like your kids?
11:32
I would say the main thing would probably be like not
11:35
being able to provide like I'm doing good right now,
11:38
but like not being able to provide would be one of the
11:40
things for sure. Do you feel like that pushes you to
11:43
kind of like, do more.
11:44
Like that's your incentive is like your kids and being able to
11:47
provide for your family.
11:49
That's why you work hard and make sure you have it.
12:13
And like, my wife's good about it because she's been through
12:15
it. So she's like,
12:16
just showing me teaching me everything.
12:19
That's good. It's a,
12:21
its a, it takes a team for sure to have each
12:24
other support. What would you say is one thing that you
12:29
weren't warned about the biggest challenge being like the bad guy,
12:33
I guess you could say because you kind of have to be
12:37
that guy in order to set the rules and stuff like that
12:39
because you want to have a good relationship at the same time
12:42
You gotta be like a parent,
12:43
you know, Los Ojos.
12:45
It's like, how do you stay ahead of your partner's needs
12:49
Tambien because like, I mean,
12:50
it's a family, right?
12:51
And like, again,
12:52
the dad and the mom,
12:53
you kind of have to work together and everything.
12:54
How do you make sure that like,
12:55
you and your partner are both,
12:57
like, supporting each other as well?
12:59
Well, sometimes we'll even have like our,
13:01
like our date nights.
13:03
So we'll, I'll spend time with my wife specifically and then
13:07
we'll have like family time where we travel together and then we
13:10
just try to find a good routine to where like,
13:12
we're all like spending time together and making sure that everybody gets
13:15
like time alone with one another.
13:17
Yeah, very rewarding.
13:18
Your own little units,
13:20
your little, you know,
13:21
I love that. Well,
13:22
congratulations again. So excited for the new addition to your family
13:27
And where can people find you before we head out?
13:30
Oh, it's just Rafael Gomez 195.
13:33
Pretty much everywhere. Just Rafael.
13:35
Awesome. Thank you again.
13:37
Thank you, dude.
13:41
That was crazy. 000 she said and you go back to
13:48
your mom like just for a little bit,
13:50
you know, and then we gotta get,
13:51
get the card. Men can spill just as much tea as
14:00
women. Maybe even more.
14:02
I have no clue what their Chism is about.
14:04
So here to give us all the truth is comedian D JJ
14:08
Valentino. What's up?
14:11
What's up? Thanks for having me.
14:12
Welcome. Thank you for coming.
14:14
So I don't know if you saw but there's this Tik Tok
14:17
trend of like men hanging out with their like girl and
14:22
the girl's friends being there and the guy just like all like
14:26
hovering over them just that's weird because I've never done that before
14:32
I don't even know why you guys brought me here because
14:34
that's not me. Really?
14:36
Oh, I don't know.
14:37
I smell cheese moss on my eye.
14:39
I'm just kidding. So,
14:41
so I wanna ask you,
14:43
where do the men spill the cheese med?
14:45
Like is it the group chat?
14:47
Is it the basketball court?
14:49
Ok, so I'm in the entertainment industry,
14:52
so I definitely don't do it in the industry.
14:55
I'm a DJ and a comedian.
14:57
I'm not gonna do it around other comedians.
14:59
I'm not gonna do it around other DJ s and votes.
15:02
You don't poop where you eat?
15:04
Yeah. Can we a cuss here?
15:05
Don't shoot. And I'm single at the moment.
15:09
But if I am hanging out with a female that I do
15:11
trust or even my mother.
15:14
Oh, for sure.
15:16
She's Guatemalan Cuban. Come on.
15:19
Of course. Yes.
15:20
If this is my mom or somebody that I trust away from
15:23
those people, away from the industry,
15:25
then I'll do it.
15:25
I'm not gonna lie.
15:26
Everybody does it. Why do you think there's traffic when there's
15:28
an accident on the freeway?
15:30
We're all nosy. Why do you think social media is so
15:33
big? We all want,
15:34
we're all, we all wanna know.
15:35
We're nosy. Yeah,
15:37
we are. And like do you have any che for us
15:40
Like what's on the radar?
15:41
What are you talking about?
15:43
We're gonna save that for the,
15:44
for the lobby. Ok.
15:45
We're gonna talk about that over there.
15:48
Not really. I mean,
15:49
you know, for me it's just guys,
15:52
if you're gonna tease me,
15:53
I do it in the privacy of your own home.
15:56
Try to stay away from doing it in the industry that you're
15:59
in because it's gonna bite you in the butt later.
16:02
You know, I'll be honest with you.
16:03
That's not a good look.
16:05
You know, if you know,
16:06
like once again, we're all human about it.
16:07
Just do it in your own private.
16:09
Talk to your girl about it,
16:10
talk to your mom about it to people that you trust about
16:12
it or just don't talk about it at all.
16:14
This is true or talk to your mom about it.
16:16
Yeah. Talk to your mom for sure.
16:17
The moms for sure with them,
16:20
like, just hits different.
16:21
It does. It does.
16:22
And they give you good substance.
16:24
They have a good substance.
16:25
They, you know,
16:25
they, they have good oh yeah,
16:27
they, and they be folding that napkin when they're telling you
16:31
folding a fucking napkin.
16:32
I like that. I like that to me.
16:35
My mom is making my bed while she's doing that.
16:37
No. See not OK.
16:38
No. La Maria.
16:39
Come on. No,
16:40

16:46
I'll be like, yeah,
16:46
mom keep washing my dishes.
16:48
What you saying? I'll be here all day.
16:50
So with stand up because you are a stand up comedian.
16:53
So do you, do you like ever spill like like a
16:56
family che or like friend che or like,
17:00
you know, I know you're single but like when you had
17:01
a girl like their cheese man on there or has anyone gotten
17:04
mad because you have I mean,
17:07
so comedy is honest.
17:09
Comedy is honest. I like OK,
17:11

17:14
So I, I like,
17:15
I don't know if this is cheese,
17:16

17:17
Can't tell like, oh my God.
17:22
Oh, ok. I definitely,
17:25
you know, I talk about trans,
17:26
I, I'm transparent.
17:27
You know, I talk about,
17:29
I was in the strip club industry for 18 years.
17:31
I was a strip club.
17:32
DJ. I definitely talk about the strip club stuff.
17:34
What went on behind the scenes,
17:36
you know, that's che on though.
17:38
You know what I mean?
17:38
There's a lot of stuff that I shouldn't have saw at the
17:41
age of 1920 in the,
17:42
in the industry. That's Chian though.
17:45
There's a lot of stuff that went on behind the scenes that
17:47
dancers probably wouldn't want people to know.
17:50
That's Ciano, you know,
17:51
like, you know,
17:52
like strings hanging out on stage,
17:54
you know. Yeah.
17:57
You know when the girl has a monthly cycle.
17:59
00 snap. He's spelling it.
18:03
No pun attendant, no strings attached,
18:07
no strings attached with women.
18:10
I talked about how a girl once released a gas bubble on
18:14
me after love making.
18:16
That's a, a fart on me.
18:19
And I never, I never said the name but it happened
18:23
you know, but once again,
18:25
girls don't fart. So I don't,
18:26
you didn't hear it from me?
18:28
You didn't hear it from me?
18:29
Girls don't fart what?
18:30
You don't, right.
18:32
Pass gas at all.
18:33
That a guy thing that,
18:34
that stays in here,
18:35
girls don't even eat beans,
18:37
right? For that reason.
18:39
OK, Jay. So give us the cheese man.
18:41
On your like, do you have any tours coming up?
18:43
So, I have a,
18:44
a few dates. I'm in the Bay Area on the 14th
18:48
I'm in Sacramento performing at the stand up with Luis Pazos
18:52
in Sacramento. You can check it out on my social media
18:55
and on the 21st,
18:57
I believe it's a Thursday.
18:58
I'll be at a club called Blue Martini in Phoenix and in
19:02
next month in April,
19:04
I'll be in Modesto performing again on April 5th.
19:08
But all this information is on the link on my bio,
19:10
Lincoln bio. Here we go.
19:15
Damn, son. Where'd you find this?
19:21
Have you heard about TEMU?
19:23
I've heard about them.
19:25
I know that they had like some commercials in the Super Bowl
19:28
but I'm not really familiar with them.
19:29
Are you? I haven't ordered from TEMU but I have ordered
19:32
from sheen before. You know,
19:34
I know they're very similar.
19:36
So I did some research and it has horrible reviews and ac
19:42
score from the Better Business Bureau.
19:44
Wait reviews from like the people that purchase things from them or
19:50
so horrible reviews because it's like,
19:52
I'm like, it's so cheap that it's like,
19:53
is it like a per the prices are hard to beat to
19:59
help us get to the bottom of this.
20:01
We have Michelle Steele from TIWWG.
20:06
Hi, Michelle. Hi ladies,
20:09
welcome. Thank you for joining us.
20:11
Thank you. Why do you think it's so cheap?
20:13
Like how can they afford to sell things for so cheap.
20:16
Well, the companies are really interesting but they have pretty similar
20:20
business models, at least up to a point.
20:22
So one thing is they really rely on manufacture in companies,
20:26
sorry, manufacturing in countries where it's a lot cheaper for
20:30
labor. This often means that a lot of these workers aren't
20:33
full time employees, they aren't,
20:34
there isn't any regulations,
20:36
they can work longer hours.
20:38
The second thing is they go direct to the manufacturer.
20:41
So instead of relying on a middleman to sell the product to
20:45
them, they can get that direct profit.
20:47
And the third thing really is that they're willing to take a
20:50
loss to really win in the US market.
20:52
So, to,
20:53
has done interviews where they said they're losing about $30 per order
20:57
in the US just to win the US market.
20:59
And we're so interested in this because,
21:01
you know, the Super Bowl,
21:02
we just saw 3 $7 million ads to advertise this company.
21:07
So they're willing to take a little bit of a loss right
21:09
now to sell you those cheap products as you're talking about to
21:12
really get the marketplace here in the US.
21:16
So would you say Temu is legit?
21:19
I haven't ordered anything from TEMU.
21:20
I get a little like,
21:22
I don't know, I feel like it's too good to be
21:23
true. So I'm like,
21:25
I don't know, like,
21:26
would you say it's legit?
21:27
Well, definitely. So they claim that they're going to the
21:30
same manufacturers that are making your airpods,
21:33
but they're just using their own products on the side.
21:36
So you're probably getting the same quality.
21:38
However, you can take that with a grain of salt.
21:40
So these companies might be using the same factories but they might
21:43
not have the standards and checks that you would get from,
21:46
let's say an apple.
21:47
That's so interesting.,
21:50
I mean, we can only hope that they're paying their employees
21:52
like livable wages but chances are they're,
21:54
they're coming from like sweatshops or some environments like that.
21:58
Correct. Definitely. That's one of the big complaints about companies
22:02
like Temu and X and that they work in these countries that
22:04
don't have standardized practices.
22:06
You might be seeing people make to fulfill demands,
22:10
working long hours, maybe not even getting overtime.
22:13
So there's a lot of concern and on top of that,
22:15
they're making so many different products that it causes a lot of
22:19
environmental waste. She and I know we're talking mostly about
22:22
TEMU, for example,
22:23
they are using so much plastic and vinyl that they're producing as
22:27
much waste as 100 80 coal powered plants a day.
22:31
So you are getting a lot of these products,
22:33
you are getting them cheaper,
22:34
but it is having an environmental cost and it's not normally made
22:38
ethically, although these companies have said that they have an eye
22:41
on making sure that they are going to be environmentally friendly in
22:44
the future. Dang.
22:46
It really makes one stop and think twice about,
22:48
you know, like you're getting a deal but at what cost
22:50
so this is affecting the environment,
22:53
you know, other people's lives.
22:55
Like, what are some other options you would recommend shopping
22:59
at? Well, I think you should be conscious about what
23:02
you buy and where you're buying it from.
23:04
So the average sheen customer spends about $100 of on clothing a
23:09
month and you probably don't need that much clothing.
23:12
So really buy when you need it,
23:14
buying one piece here and there is probably more sustainable.
23:17
You can also look at buying second hand.
23:19
And on top of that,
23:19
you can look at how companies are ethical.
23:22
There's a lot of different standards to see if they're being green
23:25
and to see if they're being conscious about the environmental waste they're
23:28
causing and you can choose to put your money in those places
23:31
Well, thank you so much Michelle for joining us.
23:33
This has been really illuminating and I hope our audience kind of
23:36
take some knowledge from this.
23:38
If they do want to find out more,
23:39
where can people find you?
23:41
Well, I work for,
23:42
they called Tiwwg. So I'm a media consultant and I work
23:46
for different publications including C NBC Cheddar News and more.
23:49
Thank you so much Michelle.
23:51
We really appreciate you being on the show.
23:53
Thanks. I've never bought it.
23:54
She, but like this last time that I went to Mexico
23:56
like Miia, we went to the beach last year,
23:58
we went on like a big family trip and she's like,
24:00
oh those Mitra, I know that she in and I was
24:02
like, oh my God,
24:03
like they're kind of cute,
24:04
you know. But then she was literally,
24:06
we were in the water at the beach and she'd be like
24:08
Mira, she in,
24:09
she, she, she,
24:11
she pointing to every single person that she literally literally.
24:16
So or if I go to a boutique.
24:19
Oh dude, I have seen some boutiques with shit that's on
24:24
shin. And I'm like,
24:25
damn, they be buying shit,
24:27
taking the tags off and putting it in their store and selling
24:31
it for triple quadruple the price.
24:37
You know what's up,
24:44
you g bro, sorry,
24:45
I, I couldn't hear you.
24:47
Oh, that's probably because the rock just got the copyright for
24:50
all of his slogans.
24:51
Nicknames and phrases from WWE ah,
24:54
that's stop Paris Hilton owns that.
24:57
Let's not get sued.
24:58
So I can't say,
24:59
can you smell what the rock is cooking?
25:01
No. Ok. Well,
25:04
I'm super confused about celebrities and trademarks.
25:07
If only we had a famous lawyer to explain.
25:13
Wait, we do.
25:15
We have Taylor Thieman from legal mega.
25:18
Hi Taylor. So I think a lot of us are a
25:26
bit confused. What's the difference between a trademark and a copyright
25:29
Yeah. Good question.
25:30
Everyone gets this confused.
25:32
Copyright is more along the lines of like things you're creating works
25:36
of authorship. Creative works trademark is more along the lines of
25:40
your branding business name,
25:43
stage name slogans. So there are two different types of intellectual
25:47
property law, but they often intersect with each other because when
25:50
we're working in these areas,
25:52
both of those things kind of happen all the time.
25:55
Why do celebs fight for like trademarks?
25:57
Like what's the benefit?
25:59
Like, how do they,
26:00
how do they get paid the Rock and sue us?
26:02
Probably not.,
26:05
celebrities usually are fighting for their trademarks.
26:07
And what it looks like in this situation is that the Rock
26:10
didn't actually own his own trademark and trademarks like the Rock and
26:14
some other names and phrases before it looked like WWE actually owned
26:18
those. So the Rock is benefiting off of those,
26:22
but not as much,
26:22
obviously, if he owned his actual trademark.
26:24
So licensing deals, sponsorship deals,
26:27
any sort of collapse he's doing,
26:29
he is not making as much very likely if he's not the
26:33
actual owner of those trademarks,
26:35
where can people if they want to start filing?
26:38
What's the first step that someone should do with?
26:40
Do they go to the website?
26:41
Do they contact a lawyer?
26:43
I would definitely suggest checking out the trademark website,
26:46
which is us pto.gov.
26:48
That's where you can file federal trademarks.
26:50
That's where all of the celebrities and big businesses are filing their
26:54
trademarks and there's nothing stopping you from filing one there if you
26:57
want to as well.
26:58
They have a lot of information on that site.
27:00
But if it's confusing and you're not familiar with the process,
27:03
then you might want to talk to an attorney.
27:04
So, so if someone is watching this and they want to
27:07
reach you so that you can help them,
27:09
where can people find you?
27:10
I'm at LEGO Mega on Instagram and then LEGO Mega law.com and
27:16
I'm all over socials.
27:18
I'm always messaging people and stuff.
27:20
So I'm pretty busy over there.
27:22
Thank you so much for joining us Taylor and congratulations as well
27:27
I saw on your Instagram the big news.
27:30
She's pregnant. So many babies.
27:33
Oh my gosh, that's the theme for today's episode.
27:35
Congratulations. Thank you.
27:38
Thank you. I feel like everybody's pregnant right now.
27:41
It's the time of the,
27:45
that's impossible. That's funny.
27:49
But thank you so much Taylor Taylor on the next time I
27:54
said you really got me with that one.
27:56
That's impossible. Same.
28:00
Honestly. Well, that was a great show.
28:03
Thank you to all of our guests for joining us.
28:07
Again, congratulations to Alejandro and Adrian.
28:09
We're so excited. Every single one of us is so excited
28:12
for you guys. Super in,
28:14
I'm Jess and I'm Jenny and that was it.
28:18
And I'm pregnant, Jenny.
28:19
You didn't tell me that my baby's crying,
28:23
