Taylor Swift could be set to face legal action over her social networking app called The Swift Life.
The app provides Swift’s legion of fans with the opportunity to interact with one another while getting updates from the singer.
It is described as “a creative, inclusive and community-driven place for users to better connect with each other… and Taylor”.
The app promises to offer exclusive photos and videos, replies from the singer herself, Swift-themed emojis (aka Taymojis) and the chance to listen to Swift’s music via the app.
However, a computer company called SwiftLife is reportedly suing the singer because they believe she stole the Swift lifestyle company title from them. SwiftLife’s case claims it has held ownership of the company since 2007.
Patrick Benot, the one-man owner of the unrelated SwiftLife, trademarked the company’s name in 2008. He claims that Swift and her team took the name and brand and made their own product without any form of consultation. Benot is suing for trademark infringement and he is ultimately seeking unspecified damages.
