If 2014 wasn't earth-shattering enough for Taylor Swift, the singer who has a current net worth of $200 million thought she'd take it just that extra step further.
With countless number of awards and musical praise, an iconic breakup with Spotify and a general takeover of the Internet, Swift has now applied for trademarks on her some of her favorite phrases, to ensure her legacy continues.
Multiple song lyrics (so far) from Swift's fifth studio album "1989" and other "Swift Inc" phrases have been filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, according to Justia, a legal database.
"Nice to meet you. Where you been?" and "this sick beat" are just some of the lyrics she wants trademarked, featured on her first two singles; however "haters gonna hate hate hate" and "shake it off" haven't shown up on the list.
The products that restrict the use of these song lyrics range from the basic clothing, printed publications and recordings to the obscure, such as skin soaps, kitchen linens, wind chimes and Christmas ornaments.
Other trademark phrases that have been filed by Swift include "Swiftstakes", "T.S." and previous studio album titles.
The "1989" studio album was 2014's top selling album, which sold a total of 3.66 million copies last year according to Nielsen Music. In addition, "1989" made Swift the first artist to have ever three albums sell more than 1 million copies within a week's span.

In the end, Christian Louboutin achieved trademark protection over the red sole, while YSL could use that trademark red color, as long as it covered the whole of the shoe's design.
The question now is what can we expect next from Swift? Performing at the 2016 Super Bowl perhaps?
