  • Description of mark: “The mark consists of “TAYLOR SWIFT” appearing in a stylized form”.

  • Why this trademark rocks:
    • It’s natural for global celebrities to want to trademark all the insignia for which they are known, and the first place to start is often the celebrity’s name, signature and initials.
    • Taylor Swift has protected all three with trademark registrations covering categories including cosmetics, shoes, handbags, greetings cards, and beach towels.
    • Celebrities are global brands, now more than ever before.
    • A successful trademark registration will ensure that Taylor Swift has the monopoly over her brand.
    • If celebrities don’t capitalise on their trademarks, someone else will be waiting in line to do it for them.
