A federal judge rejected Beyoncé's request for a permanent injunction to stop a company selling shirts, tank tops, hoodies and other items bearing the name “Feyoncé.” The singer complained in a lawsuit brought in April 2016 that Feyonce Inc.'s sale of knockoffs infringed her trademark rights and would confuse consumers. But in a decision issued on Monday, US District Judge Alison Nathan in Manhattan said San Antonio-based Feyonce's choice to capitalize off the exceedingly famous Beyoncé trademark did not mean confusion would follow. “A rational jury might or might not conclude that the pun here is sufficient to dispel any confusion among the purchasing public,” she wrote.
