Gaga filed her claim in Manhattan Supreme Court on Wednesday against Excite Worldwide for attempting to trademark the name "Lady Gaga By Design."

The suit claims that the company knows that they their application will never be approved by the US Patent and Trademark office, but they're still moving forward with the request. Due to this confusion, Gaga's own request for jewelry and fragrances hasn't been approved.

Gaga wants Excite to be banned from filing further applications with her name in the request, and the suit also seeks unspecified financial damages.
