Taylor Swift trademarks song lines

If you want to Party Like It's 1989 you'll have to ask Taylor Swift now.

The 25-year-old singer has trademarked the catchphrase from her album 1989 - named after the year she was born - along with a string of other phrases.

Vox broke the news, posting a copy of the paperwork for the term "This Sick Beat" that Taylor has obtained from the US Patent and Trademark Office.

She also own the rights to "Party Like It's 1989″, "'Cause We Never Go Out of Style", "Could Show You Incredible Things" and "Nice to Meet You, Where You Been?".

The trademark terms prohibit the use of those phrases from appearing without a licence on everything from T-shirts to removable tattoos.

You'd also need Taylor's permission to print those phrases on typewriters, walking sticks, non-medicated toiletries, Christmas stockings, knitting implements, pot holders, lanyards, aprons, whalebone, napkin holders and "whips, harness and saddlery".
