A star who is leading the battle against streaming services over performer royalties may have found a work around.
Taylor Swift has filed legal documents giving her the right to brand a website "featuring non-downloadable multi-media content in the nature of audio recordings." Yes, it does sound like a streaming service. She wants to call the website "Swifties."
But, she’s not stopping there. According to the docs, she's prepping the launch of a line of music products, including guitars, guitar picks, guitar straps and drumsticks. The filing also includes plans for organizing retreats, educational camps and self-guided online courses.
