It has been two months since we last registered in the battle between the blues singer Anita “Lady A”
Lady A replied shortly afterwards, but now Rolling stone he says it went on to file a counterclaim against the group, claiming that it had “national rights” to the Lady A trademark and that its use preceded “all rights in the Lady A trademark allegedly owned by Lady Antebellum”. (In their costume, the band claims to have used Lady A as a nickname for years, although it seems to only appear in situations where people can’t be bothered to spell their full name.) Lady A also claims that this whole “is overshadowed the demand for it on social media and music services “, which led to” lost sales, reduced brand identity and reduced value and goodwill associated with the brand “.
The group filed a lawsuit only after Lady A requested a $ 10 million deal in exchange for allowing them to use the name. Rolling stone noting that she says she did so only after deciding that the group did not take her objections seriously enough. Meanwhile, the group’s claim does not seek money or compensation, but only serves to establish that the group can use the name and that Lady A cannot sue them for it later (which she is now doing).
