Katy Perry loses trademark battle over her name
Katy Perry has lost a trademark battle over her name.
The pop star - who was born Katheryn Hudson - was sued for trademark infringement by Australian fashion designer Katie Taylor - who runs a clothing brand using her birth name of Katie Perry - and a judge Down Under ruled against the singer on Friday (28.04.23) by confirming the 'Roar' star had breached Katie's trademark several times.
In her ruling, Justice Brigitte Markovic wrote: "This is a tale of two women, two teenage dreams and one name."
The Katie Perry brand was set up in 2006 before being trademarked, and the designer claimed merchandise sold during the singer's subsequent Australian tours were in breach.

The 44-year-old star - who has Max, 12, Carey, eight, and five-year-old Charlotte with wife Julia Carey - moved from his native England to front the CBS talk show from LA almost a decade ago but when closing out his final episode on Thursday (27.04.23) , he urged Americans to embrace the "optimism and joy" of their country.
