Taylor Swift Is Getting Sued [VIDEO]
Taylor Swift loves the number 13. It's been a 'trademark' of hers since she first launched into country music. But, the clothing company Lucky 13 says that she's infringing on their trademark '13'.
Is this something that the company should sue over? Is it just a number? Should Swift have a right to use the #13?
According to the lawsuit, which was filed early Tuesday morning, the clothing brand is accusing T.Swift of trademark infringement stemming from her unauthorized use of Lucky 13's federally registered trademarks.
The company, which was founded in 1991 and specializes in street wear, claims that they have contacted Swift's camp numerous times but there was no resolution", according to E!
According to Philly.com,
Owner Robert Kloetzly is now asking for Swift's merchandising site to be shut down and for all the profits made or the damages to his company - whichever is greater.
Swift has often talked about the significance of the number 13, telling MTV.com in 2009, "I paint (it) on my hand before every show because 13 is my lucky number- for a lot of reasons. It's really weird. "I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th. My first album went gold in 13 weeks. My first (number one) song had a 13-second intro. Every time I've won an award I've been seated in either the 13th seat, the 13th row, the 13th section or row M, which is the 13th letter (of the alphabet). Basically, whenever a 13 comes up in my life, it's a good thing."
