Just days before accusations of sexual misconduct against Kevin Spacey became public, a trademark application was filed in the US for "Presidential by Kevin Spacey" merchandise by a company called Dovetail Ventures, LLC.
As reported by The Wrap, it would seem that the 'House of Cards' star has had plans to launch a wide variety of goods and services related to his role as the character Frank Underwood on the Netflix series. The October 24, 2017 trademark filing isn't the first Spacey-as-president trademark application; several other Presidential by Kevin Spacey trademark applications had already been filed in April 2016 for everything from clothing, towels, bedding, alcoholic beverages, gourmet food, and cell phone covers, to health spa, hotel, and concierge services.
The future of Spacey's "presidential" merchandise looks uncertain now that Netflix has cut all ties with the actor. A company statement from the entertainment company, released on November 4, said: “Netflix will not be involved with any further production of ‘House of Cards’ that includes Kevin Spacey.”
