According to a report from the BBC, the singer filed trademarks for the term "Swiftmas" -- a way fans describe Taylor's various good deeds, from charity work to free concert tickets -- the album title 1989, "Blank Space," as well as its lyric "And I'll write your name." The trademarks were reportedly filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Dec. 3.
