Taylor Swift wins trademark case
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - October 6, 2010 -- Taylor Swift has won a court fight against 16 individuals she claimed violated trademark rights by selling counterfeit merchandise bearing her name and picture.
Court documents said a federal judge in Nashville granted a default judgment last week permanently barring 16 individuals from making or selling Taylor Swift merchandise.
Swift claimed in the suit that her merchandise enforcement team found numerous individuals selling fake goods across the country during her 2009 tour, including T-shirts with her image on them.
A message left for Swift's attorney on Wednesday was not immediately returned. Court records indicated that the accused individuals had no attorneys listed and they had not responded to the lawsuit.
