Country group Lady A, formerly Lady Antebellum, sues blues singer Anita White for the same name


In June, the group formerly known as Lady Antebellum announced that it would change its name to Lady A to remove any association with slavery. But weeks after it seemed to reach an agreement with Seattle blues singer Anita White, who has been using the same name for more than a decade, the group of countries announced on Wednesday that it is continuing it.”Today we are sad to share that our sincere hope of joining Anita White in unity and the common purpose has ended,” members of Lady A’s group said in a statement to CBS News. “She and her team demanded a payment of $ 10 million, so reluctantly we came to the conclusion that we must ask a court to assert our right to continue to use the name Lady A, a trademark that we have been holding for many years. “

Class members Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and David Haywood have decided to sue after “White’s attempt to assert alleged trademark rights in a mark that the plaintiffs have owned for more than a decade”, says the trial . The group is not seeking monetary damages, the trial said.
