Catchphrase "Yuuup!" In Legal Battle Between Singer And Reality TV Star….Seriously, No Joke.

Yuuup!

Many Trey Songz fans might notice when the singer begins every song with the word.

Others might recognize the word from A&E's Storage Wars as star of the show Dave Hester uttered Yuuup! as well.

The two have been fighting it out to see who has legal copyright over the use of the word.

Songz has sent Hester a cease and desist letter to get the reality tv star to stop saying the word, claiming he's used it since late 2009.

But Songz hasn't trademarked Yuuup!

Hester has registered the catchphrase three times since May and he argues that Songz and his version sound completely different.

Songz apparently should've trademarked Yuuup! when he had the chance so he's probably kicking himself right now.

D'OH! (That's trademarked too.)

    This is so fucking stupid. Just utterly fucking stupid and these two asshats should just shut the fuck up and go their separate ways. Yes, I commented even though I thought it was ridiculous because it literally was one of those things where you read it and you're like really?? The word Yuuup! ? I'm gonna let you guys in on a secret, it's not even a real fucking word!! That is all.

    ugh, i cannot stand dave hester, hes such a jerk on that show. why would he even want to trade mark that word as if people were actually going to buy products off him with his Yuuup logo or something. I saw him in Anaheim,ca and even the truck he was driving had a license plate with Yuuup on it,so stupid.

    Mike Judge used Yup in King of the Hill every episode in the alley way before these 2 even found themselves remotely on the radar.



  15. 15

    WTF? Gary Cooper made a career saying "Yup!" 60 years ago! Duh!
    BTW, I'm trademarking every number & letter, so if you want to use them, you will have to pay me a royalty fee :-)
