Taylor Swift Countersues Theme Park That’s Suing Her

The battle continues between Taylor Swift and the Utah theme park, “Evermore.” The theme park originally sued Taylor for trademark infringement after it claimed that Swift’s album caused “confusion” online and infringed on the theme park’s marketing and merchandise.

Now Taylor Swift’s trademark company, TAS, is countersuing Evermore for illegally using her songs, “Love Story,” “You Belong With Me,” and “Bad Blood,” in park performances without a license.

The suit states that Evermore CEO, Ken Bretschneider, “blatantly ignored the numerous notices from BMI and opted instead to continue to benefit from the free and unauthorized public performance of [the songs], despite actual knowledge of the liability and substantial penalties imposed by the Copyright Act to protect artists.” 

Bretschneider only reached out to BMI after the lawsuit from TAS was imminent.
