Beyoncé is suing a clothing company called Feyoncé, Inc. over copyright infringement. The singer says the defendants have ignored her requests to halt sales of their products, and that Feyoncé, Inc. is causing Beyoncé, Inc. “irreparable harm.”

The Feyoncé outfit has made their money in apparel, selling tops and bottoms emblazoned with sayings like “Feyoncé: He put a ring on it,” according to Rolling Stone, pulling from the singer’s “Single Ladies” hit. It’s kind of cute, but Beyoncé’s name is trademarked, and the company’s earned themselves a lawsuit in a Manhattan federal court.

Beyoncé is seeking undisclosed damages. This suit follows a similar one last year, regarding Etsy mugs emblazoned with “Feyoncé,” which were eventually pulled.
