Taylor Swift Wins in Trademark Infringement Litigation

Taylor Swift has been granted a default judgment for trademark infringement against 16 individuals for selling counterfeit merchandise bearing her name and picture.

Swift’s merchandise enforcement team found individuals selling T-shirts and other tour related items with her image on them. All items were produced with out permission or consent.  Senior District Judge Thomas A. Wiseman Jr. also ordered that the fake items that were confiscated be destroyed.

I did a trademark search for Taylor Swift, and pulled up several registered trademarks, including one for her signature, her name, and her logo.  It’s no secret that going on tour helps singers and bands make mega money, selling merchandise and albums.  Protecting her brand will protect her revenue.

AP reports calls were made to Swift’s attorney with no response.
