Taylor Swift accused of 'stealing' Folklore logo from businesswoman

After Swift, 30, released her eighth studio album on Friday, a Black artist Amira Rasool claimed on Twitter that Folklore's merch logo bared a striking resemblance to her online store-The Folklore, which exclusively sells goods from Africa and the diaspora, according to its website. Rasool says she got immediate word that the word "The" would be removed from all the merch, and that it would be marketed just as "Folklore", the same name as the album itself. "I am sharing my story to shed light on the big business / celebrity trend by copying the work of minority-owned small business owners".

Swift is now selling sweatshirts, t-shirts, and cardigans with that name and logo, all to promote her new album that she released last week.

Rasool called the layout change "a good first step" and explained her and Swift's groups were being speaking about the predicament.

"I commend Taylor's group for recognizing that the harm the product brought on to my firm @TheFolklore's brand", she wrote on Tuesday.

"Rasool also tweeted her appreciation of the move, noting that Swift has been "a strong advocate for women protecting their creative rights".

CNN has reached outside to Rasool and Swift's publicist for opinion, but hasn't heard back. Rasool publicly thanked Swift.

Aged care worker tests positive for coronavirus in Queensland
Muranga and Lasu subsequently tested positive for coronavirus and are now under police guard in hospital. All staff and residents are now on red alert and have been told to get tested immediately.

On Thursday, Swift declared that she had been devoting to Rasool's business.

Swift responded to the tweet, saying she admired Rasool's work and that she'd donated money to the Black in Fashion Council, which launches August 3. However, she is happy that Taylor's team solved this matter.

Swift's selection to shake it off and suitable training course stands in contrast to the way that Lady A, formerly known as Woman Antebellum, taken care of a very similar predicament.

The country trio announced last month that it would be dropping "Antebellum" from its name because of the association with slavery and instead go by "Lady A". "However, it was that midnight singer Anita White was acting under the title" Lady A" for years.

To begin with, it seemed that the parties would be capable to sort items out. But matters broke down along with the team filed suit at Nashville's U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee.
