The court battle began back in February, when Evermore Park accused Swift of trademark infringement following the December 2020 release of her latest album, “Evermore.” The business claimed Swift’s album caused “actual confusion and negatively affected their search engine placement.”

The park, which first opened in 2018, offers guests of all ages a chance to immerse themselves in a fantasy world complete with baby dragons, dwarves, Knights and other magical elements put on by effects crews and costumed actors.

Swift’s attorneys called their claims “baseless,” and ignored the cease-and-desist letter sent to her camp on December 18. TAS Rights Management, Swift’s trademark and music rights team, then countersued the park, alleging that it had been playing the pop star’s music “without authorization or license agreement.” The suit specifically named the songs “Love Story,” “You Belong to Me” and “Bad Blood.”

As Swifties know, “Evermore” was a surprise album announced by Swift just hours before its Dec. 11 release. The 15-song project was coined a “sister album” to one she released earlier in 2020 titled “Folklore.”
