Taylor countersues Evermore Theme Park

Recommended Posts



Taylor Swift has turned the tables in her intellectual property spat with Evermore Park in Utah. TAS Rights Management, the company that handles the rights for Swift’s music and other trademarks, has filed a lawsuit against the park.

Swift’s team claims Evermore Park was regularly engaged in copyright infringement itself. The suit alleges that three Swift songs — “Love Story,” “You Belong With Me,” and “Bad Blood” — were regularly used in performances at the park without a proper license. Legal documents from Swift’s team also allege that Evermore Park “blatantly ignored the numerous notices from BMI and opted instead to continue to benefit from the free and unauthorized public performance of [the songs], despite actual knowledge of the liability and substantial penalties imposed by the Copyright Act to protect artists.”

It goes on to suggest that Evermore and its CEO, Ken Bretschneider, only reached out to BMI “seeking a retroactive license that would cover all performances” from 2018 through 2021 after he learned that the Swift’s countersuit was imminent.

Evermore theme park did not immediately return a request for comment.
