Beyonce And Business Owner Locked In Trademark Battle
Music star, Beyoncé is currently locked in a legal battle over her intention to trademark her daughter’s name, Blue Ivy.
The 37-year-old Grammy award-winning singer has refused to hand over private communications with husband Jay Z and her mother, Tina Knowles amid ongoing trademark battle over Blue Ivy’s name.
The “Single Ladies” hitmaker is locked in the trademark battle with Veronica Morales who has a business with the same name Beyonce is trying to trademark.
The businesswoman has requested a list of documents and communications from the singer to show any evidence she planned to use the trademark. According to Morales, the entertainment couple of Beyoncé and Jay Z have no intention of actually selling any products, and are trying to trademark the name ‘so that nobody else could’.
Morales also wants to see all communications between Beyonce and Jay Z, in connection with their trademark application from more than two years ago.
According to reports, Beyoncé is seeking a protective order. The singer wants the order to prohibit the wedding planner or her legal team from leaking the confidential information.
It would be recalled that Beyoncé filed her trademark intent application covering 14 international trademark classes in 2012.
However, documents show that between July 2013 to July 2015, the songstress filed five extensions with the US Patent and Trademark Office requesting additional time to file statements showing the use of the Blue Ivy Carter mark.
Meanwhile, Beyoncé previously claimed Veronica had tried to sell her the rights to the name for $10million
The US Trademark Act states the request may only be filed by a person ‘who has a bona fide intention, under circumstances showing the good faith of such person, to use a trademark in commerce.
