Beyoncé is suing a U.S. company selling infringing “Feyonce” merchandise on their website.
The singer sued to stop the sale of shirts, sweaters, tank tops, hoodies and coffee mugs bearing the “Feyonce” name, which she says is too close to her own trademarked name. The mug has the phrase “he put a ring on it,” which Beyoncé said was intended to call to mind the lyrics of her hit song ‘Single Ladies’.
She said the sale of Feyonce items confuses consumers and causes her irreparable harm.
She also said one defendant has also filed a U.S. trademark application for “Feyonce,” with and without the accent over the “e.”
