Sky News: Taylor Swift Trademarks 'This Sick Beat' Lyric

Taylor Swift Trademarks 'This Sick Beat' Lyric: "She has sold millions of albums and her latest songs are being sung by fans around the world, but now Taylor Swift has taken action to ban the unauthorised use of her lyrics.

The Shake It Off singer has trademarked phrases such as "This sick beat" and "Cause we never go out of style" to make sure they do not appear on merchandise.

It has been a busy week for the star after her Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked on Tuesday.

According to the legal database Justia, the filing prevents the use of phrases from her album 1989 on everything from umbrellas to removable tattoos.

Other lyrics listed include "Party like it's 1989" and "Nice to meet you. Where you been?""
