Taylor Swift Threatens Guitar Teacher

Taylor Swift has threatened legal action against a man who claims he taught her how to play guitar. Ronnie Cremer, a computer technician and part-time musician, told the New York Daily News that he was Swift’s guitar instructor and launched the website itaughttaylorswift.com. TAS Rights Management sent Cremer an email telling him the domain “incorporates the famous Taylor Swift trademark in its entirety and suggests TAS’s sponsorship or endorsement of your website. The Domain Name and your use of the Domain Name are also highly likely to dilute, and to tarnish, the famous Taylor Swift trademark.” Cremer, for his part, told the Daily News, “I almost feel like they were trying to bully me a little bit. I’m not giving back the domain name. I mean, Go Daddy sold it to me.”
