As whispers circulated about Taylor Swift’s possible engagement to Travis Kelce, her latest trademark registration kicked off a whole new round of gossip.

Taylor Swift has recently stamped her identity with the trademark “The Old Taylor”. This phrase was from one of the key moments of Swift’s ‘Reputation’ album, particularly the internet-famous line “The Old Taylor Can’t Come To The Phone Right Now” from ‘Look What You Made Me Do’. August 25, 2017, marked the date when Swift officially sought the trademark for ‘Look What You Made Me Do’, with Natalya Rose, her patent lawyer, also taking the helm as the attorney of record.

In the same year, TMZ dug up documents revealing Swift’s trademark filings for the word ‘Reputation’. As per the documents, Swift aimed to plaster the lyrics on an array of merchandise, spanning from t-shirts and notebooks to guitar picks, jewelry, bags, and virtually any accessory a Swiftie might desire. However, her recent decision to refile the trademark for “the old Taylor” has only fueled the existing speculations sparked by her recent cryptic fashion spree.
