Taylor Swift and her legal team are coming for her fans! Taylor Swift-related items on Esty have been hit with alleged trademark violations and they have been forced to remove their items from store. Buzzfeed contacted a seller who spoke about the legal action Taylor & her team brought against him/her:
"We originally made the item for fun, we love Taylor and we had friends that love Taylor. We never intended for it to be a profit making item. The cost of the item covered shipping costs, and production costs with very little left over. When we got the e-mail that the trademark infringement occurred, we were pretty shocked because while our item was popular we didn’t feel as if it had become popular enough to cause harm to Taylor Swift’s empire. We were shocked. And we were scared. We didn’t even make enough money for a lawyer and this had seemed like such a harmless and fun idea."
