Jelly Roll is being sued for alleged trademark infringement over his stage name. According to Rolling Stone, Kurt L. Titchenell has filed a suit against Jelly Roll, whose real name is Jason DeFord. Titchenell is the leader of a Pennsylvania-based dance band called Jellyroll. He says they've used that name since March 1980. The band received a trademark in 2010, and renewed it in 2019. The lawsuit alleges that since Jelly Roll's "recent rise in notoriety" search engines have prioritized his results over the band's, injuring their online exposure. Titchenell is seeking injunctive relief for service mark infringement, false designation of origin and/or sponsorship, dilution, common law palming off, trademark and trade name infringement and unfair competition, and injury to business reputation and dilution. Jelly Roll was sent a cease-and-desist letter in February 2024. That was followed by discussions between the parties' lawyers. Jelly Roll has not commented publicly on the suit.
