Talor Swift Trademarks
Taylor Swift exploded into national attention when her debut country music album reached the top 5 on the Billboard list in 2006. She has released six albums in total, beginning as country music before transitioning to a pop icon. Her albums are:

  • Taylor Swift (2006)
  • Fearless (2008)
  • Speak Now (2010)
  • Red (2012)
  • 1989 (2014)
  • Reputation (2017)

Aside from her incredibly successful music career, the twenty seven year old is involved in several other ventures, spanning philanthropy, politics, and product endorsements.

She has pledged $4 million to build a new education center at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, TN. She has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to help support the music departments of various schools and universities, and has also donated to cancer research and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (among other donations.) Swift expressed support for former President Barack Obama, and has also spoken out against LGBT discrimination. Among the products and companies she has endorsed are Verizon Wireless, Sony, Diet Coke, and Keds.

When it comes to trademarks, Ms. Swift has mainly stuck to her name, initials, and album names. However, in 2014, she secured the trademarks to a few unique phrases from her songs. She has also trademarked a term that’s been frequently used as a hashtag.
