Katy Perry sued by Australian designer Katie Perry over trademark
Andrei Mincov's commentary on the original article
This is a classic example of when bad facts could make bad law. There's just no good legal outcome out of this predicament. Who should win, a prior trademark owner no one has ever heard of or a famous artist who doesn't own the brand in Australia? Is it bullying (and if yes, who is bullying whom) or opportunism? But seriously, why does it ALWAYS have to be Australia?
