Taylor Swift is countersuing a US theme park that accused her of trademark infringement, alleging it has used her music without permission. It emerged earlier this month that the owners of Evermore, a fantasy theme park in Utah, had sued the popstar over the title of her most recent album . Lawyers for the owners said they owned the trademark to the name Evermore and it was violated when Swift began selling merchandise related to her album of the same name. Swift, 31, has now hit back with a lawsuit of her own. The singer’s TAS Rights Management filed a suit in her home state of Tennessee for wilful copyright infringement.
