“As a resolution of the two lawsuits, the parties will drop and dismiss their respective lawsuits without monetary settlement,” a spokesperson for Taylor Swift said in a statement to Rolling stone. An Evermore Park lawyer did not immediately respond to Rolling stonerequest for comment from.
On February 2, Evermore Park filed a trademark infringement lawsuit claiming that the release of Swift’s Always album caused “real confusion,” which negatively impacted the park’s online presence, while damaging its marketing and merchandise, and impacted its visitors. He also alleged that Evermore Park and Swift’s Always the commodity offered similar products. The plaintiff further asserted that Swift’s clothing merchandise was counterfeit through the Evermore Park brand. She asked for “no more than $ 2 million per trademark infringement” in connection with the trademark infringement on the clothing as well as additional damages as well as attorney fees and legal costs.
The Swift team that manages the rights to its music and other brands, TAS Management, counterattacked in late February. The counter action claimed that Evermore Park routinely engaged in its own copyright infringement against Swift. The lawsuit alleged that three of Swift’s songs – “Love Story”, “You Belong With Me” and “Bad Blood” – were routinely used in shows at the theme park without him obtaining an appropriate license. He further claimed that Evermore Park ignored “numerous notices” from the performing rights organization BMI regarding the park’s alleged copyright infringement.
