  • Katy Perry versus Katy Perry, round three. The battle over trademarking the name Katy Perry has reached a new level of intensity, with Sydney fashion designer Katy Perry refusing to back down. In a David versus Goliath scenario, the small business owner is fighting against the global pop star's company, Katy Perry, for the right to use her own name for her fashion brand.
    The conflict started over a decade ago when the fashion designer received legal documents demanding that she stop selling her clothes, advertising her brand, and using her website. The pop star's company opposed her trademark registration and threatened to take the case to the Supreme Court. However, the fashion designer was determined not to give in to the bullying tactics of a big conglomerate.
    This is a common occurrence for small businesses facing pressure from large corporations. Overseas conglomerates often use legal jargon and intimidation tactics to scare smaller entities into changing their names without going to court. However, Australian Katy Perry decided to take a stand and show her children the importance of standing up for what is right, even in difficult circumstances.
    The fashion designer's inspiration for her latest collection came from a mix of architecture, modern art museums, and the influence of Memphis design. She poured her creativity and passion into her fashion line, refusing to let the pop star's company overshadow her own work.
    In an effort to protect her brand and assert her rights, Katy Perry took the legal battle to the federal court. This marked the beginning of round three in the ongoing feud. The fight over the name Katy Perry has become a symbol of the struggles faced by small businesses when going up against powerful and wealthy entities.
    The outcome of this legal battle will have significant implications for both parties. For the fashion designer, it is about protecting her brand and ensuring that she can continue using her own name for her business. For the global pop star's company, it is a matter of maintaining exclusivity and control over the Katy Perry brand.
    The story of Katy Perry versus Katy Perry serves as a reminder that even the biggest pop stars can face opposition from unexpected sources. It highlights the importance of standing up for what is right and fighting for your rights, regardless of the challenges faced. In a world where small businesses are often intimidated by the legal power of conglomerates, this case provides inspiration and hope for entrepreneurs who refuse to be silenced.
    As the legal battle unfolds, the question remains: who will emerge victorious in the fight for the name Katy Perry?

  • Pop star Perry threw in the towel before the fight got to court, but that didn't stop her company, Katy Perry, from introducing her Katy Perry clothing range into the Australian market.

  • So Aussie Katy decided to take up the fight.
  • I wanted to show my children that no matter what's happening in your life, if you're being bullied or intimidated, to stand up for what is right, even when it's hard.

  • If Katy Perry is in the international music sensation, Katy Perry is not happy with the decision, she may well appeal and even potentially another appeal from that.
  • Lawyer Richard Mitry says it's not over until the final bell rings.
  • As the judge said, in this case it was a story of two women, two teenage dreams and one name.
  • And many, many hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions of dollars spent in the fight over that name.
  • For the past few years I've been sitting in this kind of limbo space thinking potentially I was going to lose my trademark, lose my entire business.
  • So now I can go back to refocusing on it and making plans for the future.
  • Aussie Katy says she's willing to forgive the pop star, but warns she'll never forget.
  • And whether or not you're a janitor or a president, a prime minister, a mum, we all matter and we are all equal.
  • Some people at home might be thinking you did this to gain publicity for your brand.
  • What do you say to that?
  • To be honest, the past few years have taken such a toll on me.
  • There are many, many better and much easier ways to get publicity for a fashion label.
