In the news of Taylor and all of her Swifties – attorneys are asking a federal judge to dismiss a copyright lawsuit claiming the star stole aspects of a self-published book of poetry when she created a companion book for her album Lover, calling the case “legally and factually baseless.”
Teresa La Dart was the person who brought this case up as she sued Swift last year, as she claimed that the star stole “a number of creative elements” from her 2010 book (also called Lover). Friday in Tennessee federal court, Swift’s lawyers said the copyright lawsuit should be dismissed immediately because it failed in every way possible.
Attorney Doug Baldridge said: “This is a lawsuit that never should have been filed.”
The lawsuit was started back in August and is now moving forward via Billboard.
La Dart stated in the lawsuit that the book borrowed a number of visual elements from the outer design, including its “pastel pinks and blues” and an image of the author “photographed in a downward pose,” as well as the book’s overall format: “a recollection of past years memorialized in a combination of written and pictorial components.” La Dart also says the inner book design – specifically that it’s composed of “interspersed photographs and writings” – infringed her copyrights.
But in Friday’s response, Swift’s lawyers said those elements were just commonplace features of almost any book, meaning they fall well-short of being unique enough to qualify for copyright protection.
As of right now, the lawsuit is still on. La Dart has not waivered and neither have her team.
