Swift

Kuwait Times - - L IFESTYLE -

Tay­lor Swift has re­port­edly set­tled her Lucky 13 le­gal dis­pute with the Blue Sphere. The 25-year-old singer will no longer face de­po­si­tion af­ter she called for the case to be put to bed fol­low­ing al­le­ga­tions that she copied the US-based cloth­ing com­pany’s trade­marks, ac­cord­ing to The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter. Robert Kloet­zly filed a law­suit against the ‘Trou­ble’ hit­maker in May 2014 claim­ing she had used the com­pany’s Lucky 13 sham­rock de­sign for her T-shirts and greet­ing cards. He was seek­ing dam­ages and all of her prof­its as he be­lieved the blonde star had “con­fused” buy­ers and put his business, which he launched in 1991, in jeop­ardy. How­ever, Tay­lor and her le­gal team hit back, ar­gu­ing that her mer­chan­dise was to­tally dif­fer­ent and the com­pany, which she be­lieves is lit­tle known across the US, hadn’t suf­fered any losses nor dam­age to its name. The le­gal dis­pute stepped up a level ear­lier this year when the com­pany tried to reach out to the com­pa­nies the star­let had worked with in the past on a pro­mo­tional ba­sis. Tay­lor’s team then went back to the courts and al­leged Blue Sphere was “ha­rass­ing” her, but the claim was thrown out.
