If you ever wanted to have your favorite potholder pattern mass-produced with the phrases "This Sick Beat" or "'Nice to Meet You, Where You Been?," you are out of luck. Taylor Swift has trademarked
these phrases for her very own.
These phrases, and more, from her album 1989
were legally trademarked this week with the US government. Other phrases the singer trademarked include "Party Like It's 1989" and "Cause We Never Go Out of Style."
The trademark will prevent marketing these phrases on more than just potholders, of course. Christmas stockings, whalebone and removable tattoos, guitar straps, typewriters, whips, non-medicated toiletries, and saddlery are all included.
My apologies to those who had their dreams dashed before their eyes. Sadly, you will never own a "Could Show You Incredible Things" whip.
