Singer Taylor Swift has apparently filed trademark applications for five phrases including “Swiftmas,” “Blank Space,” “And I’ll Write Your Name,” “A Girl Named Girl” and “1989”.

While “1989” is the title of 25-year-old singer’s latest album, “A Girl Named Girl” is the title of a novel the singer wrote when she was 14 which remains unpublished, reported Aceshowbiz.

The patent will debar people from using the phrases in performances, on clothing, merchandise, stationery, and in books and publications freely.

For “1989”, the trademark will apply only to the year presented in “stylized form”, which looks like the one on Swift’s album cover.

Back in February, the “Bad Blood” hitmaker sought patents for phrases including “This Sick Beat,” “Nice to Meet You, Where You Been?” and “Party Like It’s 1989.”
