Taylor Swift is again in the news for attempting to trademark another selection of well-used sentences in the English language.
The down-to-earth and relatable singer-songwriter has previously applied to trademark lyrics from her album, 1989, such as "nice to meet you, where have you been" and "this sick beat", the latter inspiring the metal band Perculate to immediately write a track using exactly those words.
In addition, she has also applied to trademark the number 1989, which, besides being a popular set of digits, was also the title of four albums and at least nineteen songs prior to the release of her own 2014 LP.
According to a TMZ report, Swift is determined to claim ownership of 'Look what you made me do', arguably a very common statement and 'The old Taylor Swift can't come to the phone right now', which is not.
If the effort is successful, then the words can be heard exclusively on her latest single, 'Look what you made me do' below:
