Kenny Chesney fights back against use of palm tree logo

See also

Kenny Chesney has filed a lawsuit over the unauthorized use of his logo. If you’ve ever purchased Kenny Chesney merchandise, you’ve probably seen the logo, which features a palm tree with a guitar leaning against it. The logo has been used on Kenny Chesney t-shirts, sunglasses, beach towels and more. Now that logo is the subject of a lawsuit.

According to the Tennessean, a lawsuit was filed against T&M Enterprises when the company began selling merchandise bearing Kenny Chesney’s logo, without permission. The company was given a deadline to stop selling the imprinted items, but when the deadline passed and the merchandise was still being produced and sold, Kenny Chesney’s camp had had enough.

A spokesperson for Kenny Chesney stated, “We realized that, in fact, the defendant had no intention of honoring the agreement. Regrettably, we were forced into taking further legal action. The details of our complaint are provided in the lawsuit filed in Nashville.”

Trademarked logos such as the guitar and palm tree design are the property of the owner. It is illegal to sell trademarked merchandise without permission. It appears this case is pretty straightforward, so hopefully it will be settled quickly and Kenny Chesney can get back to singing about beautiful islands, instead of defending them.
