AllHipHop Staff

The Weeknd doesn't play when it comes to his intellectual property.

(AllHipHop News) The Weeknd has filed a lawsuit against the man attempting to trademark the name Starboy.

The singer's company has filed documents opposing Eymun Talasazan's attempt to trademark "Starboy."

The 28-year-old, real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, alleges Eymun is trying to capitalize on his success as he filed the trademark request after The Weeknd's "Starboy" single and album were released in 2016.

And 11 days after the singer and Marvel Comics announced a Starboy comic book, Eymun reportedly filed another trademark to cover use of the name in comic books.

The case continues.
