dispute over the trademark "Blue Ivy" for years . Beyonce has been looking to get the trademark to her daughter’s name, however Morales claims she had already been using it. They are scheduled to move to trial in the case.
Morales wants Beyoncé to turn over all documents showing any evidence she deliberate to virtually use the trademark "Blue Ivy" (seeing that Morales doesn’t trust the singer ever planned to use it) and any samples of her rationale to apply the name.

In newly filed court docket, Morales tries to close down Beyonce's argument over her daughter.
She writes, “Beyonce's company is trying to skirt the law, and recently argued that the 7-year old Blue Ivy Carter is a “cultural icon” in the United States. According to Wikipedia, a cultural icon “is an artifact that is identified by members of a culture as representative of that culture,” such as apple pie, baseball, and the United States Flag.”
