Singer KATY PERRY (above) is ready to launch her new signature line for Fashion Against AIDS (it's a trendy bodysuit as Katy describes it "it reminds me of something a teenage girl would wear to a dance class). Katy would like there to be no confusion with her "line" and is thus suing a Sydney, Australian fashion designer KATIE PERRY who's had a fashion label and boutique for a couple of years. Katy (the singer) is threatening legal action against the Sydney designer Katie, demanding her to remove her name from her clothing line. The Australian designer says she was stunned to receive a letter from the singer's lawyers and has vowed to fight their demands in court..."I got such a huge shock it really felt like I was being intimidated and bullied into signing everything away...it asked me to give up the trademark, withdraw sale of my clothes, withdraw any advertising and any websites, and sign that I will not in the future use a similar trademark to KATY PERRY...I pretty much burst into tears, I love my business and I'm not going to give it away without a fight, I'm not trying to become a singer, I'm not trying to be her, this is my income and the livelihood of my contractors as well ."
We'll let you know how this turns out.
