Tahlia Barnett, aka FKA twigs, finds herself in a legal battle with Linda and Laura Good, who have performed as the Twigs since the ’90s and hold a registered trademark to the stage name. As Billboard points out, Barnett first reached out to the Goods by email in June 2013, when she was still performing as Twigs, and later offered them $15,000 if they, or at least their creative handles, could co-exist. The Goods, however, sued Barnett in April 2014, forcing the switch to FKA twigs. Despite the name change, the Goods are still seeking temporary restraining order against her unless there will be a higher financial agreemet. Barnett and her reps the Beggars Group opposed, arguing that bands such as Dinosaur Jr. (formerly Dinosaur) and blink-182 (formerly Blink) have changed their names to similar ones in the past. The restraining order was denied, but the Goods retained the right to sue in the future.
