Taylor Swift‘s rights management company has filed a countersuit against the Evermore theme park in Utah.
Earlier this month, the fantasy theme park in Utah had filed a lawsuit against Swift, alleging the singer had infringed its trademark by using the park’s name for her album.
According to documents filed in court, Evermore Park claimed that the release of Swift’s Evermore caused “actual confusion,” negatively affecting the park’s online presence, along with infringing on its marketing and merchandise, and impacting its visitors.
Swift’s attorney’s called their claims “baseless,” and ignored the cease-and-desist letter sent to her camp on December 18.
However, TAS Rights Management, the company that manages Swift’s music and other trademarks, have now filed a countersuit that claims Evermore Park routinely played Swift’s music on its grounds “without authorization or license agreement.”
The suit specifically names the songs “Love Story,” “You Belong to Me” and “Bad Blood.”
The fresh lawsuit was filed on Monday, February 22, with the U.S. District Court in the middle district of Tennessee.
