Bad Reputation hitmaker reportedly sued over gaming app title

by Vibhuti Gupta, Monday, July 23, 2018

The 28-year-old American pop-star and songwriter Taylor Swift has been accused of stealing the name of her gaming application. The singer started her career at the age of 14 in country music and became the youngest artist ever signed by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house.

Taylor is currently on her Reputation Stadium Tour

She launched The Swift Life last year to introduce her fans with a unique social network through which people can gain access to her exclusive pictures, videos and news.  According to the reports, the owner of a small computer consulting company Patrick Benot stated that he has already trademarked the SwiftLife name nine years before Swift.

The 32-years-old businessman, Benot claims that the singer never took his permission before taking over the name which has caused problems within his business. He has now sued Swift, Glu Games and others related with it in Long Island Federal Court.

As per the sources, “He alleges the pop star's new app has sparked confusion among consumers, with her fans inundating his SwiftLife email helpline with questions about her product.”

Benot adds, “Swift and her representatives should have known better, because she has registered multiple trademarks for other ventures.”

He is in pursuit of protecting his brand name, and to force Blank Space singer to pay him unspecified damages.
