Lady Gaga sues company over using her name
London: Pop star Lady Gaga has filed a trademark suit against a marketing company, which has used her name to sell cosmetics and accessories.
The 25-year-old singer launched the suit on against Excite Worldwide LLC, accusing them of using her stage name to sell their own range of cosmetics and accessories, reported Aceshowbiz.
The company has refused to withdraw the application to use names such as Lady Gaga and Lady Gaga Fame at the US Patents and Trademarks Office, forcing the star to go to the New York State court to be allowed to use them on her own range of items.
"As long as someone is ahead of us on line even if they are on life support they are still blocking us," said Brad D Rose, representative of Lady Gaga.
