Taylor Swift Settles Her “Lucky 13″ Trademark Lawsuit Out Of Court

Taylor Swift Settles LawsuitOne down, two to go. Taylor Swift has settled her trademark lawsuit with marketing company Blue Sphere. The company sued her over her use of the phrase “Lucky 13″ on merchandise.

The Hollywood Reporter says that Taylor struck a deal with the company before she was set to be deposed. Blue Sphere first filed its lawsuit against Taylor in May 2014, and the trial was set to start in January.

While Taylor’s team may claim she had no idea about the specifics, Blue Sphere cited her battles with music streaming services as evidence of her involvement in branding decisions. The company also sought more information on several major brand partnerships to beef up their case.

Taylor’s legal troubles aren’t over just yet. She is currently being sued for $42 million; R&B singer Jesse Graham claims she stole a lyric of his for her song “Shake It Off.” She’s also countersuing a Denver radio DJ who sued her for alleged sexual harassment claims.
