A Nevada company is using Lady Gaga’s name to sell jewelry and cosmetics and she's not happy about it.
The Grammy Award winning singer filed a trademark infringement lawsuit last week in New York against Excite Worldwide for trying to trademark the names "Lady Gaga" and "Lady Gaga LG” without her permission, the Associated Press reports.
U.S. Patent and Trademark Office records show the applications haven't been approved, the AP reports, but the singer and fashion icon says they're making it difficult to add her own trademarks surrounding her name.
Her suit says customers could be duped into thinking she's affiliated with Excite Worldwide's products, the AP reports. She's seeking unspecified damages.
