Taylor Swift is countersuing a Utah-based theme park that accused her of trademark infringement.
According to court documents viewed by Pitchfork, the countersuit filed by TAS Rights Management claims that Evermore Park routinely played Swift’s music on its grounds “without authorization or license agreement.”
TAS’ suit claims that starting in 2019, BMI repeatedly tried to reach out to Evermore Park via phone calls, emails, and letters but the park only responded only after they learned that TAS’ countersuit was imminent.
Swift’s management company is seeking a court order for Evermore Park to pay enhanced statutory damages for each infringed upon work and performance.
In early February, Evermore Park filed filed a lawsuit claiming they own the rights to the name “evermore” and Swift violated those rights when she started selling merchandise with that branding to promote her album by the same name. They are seeking millions in damages.
