Oprah Winfrey sued over 'Own Your Power' slogan

LOS ANGELES

Simone Kelly-Brown says her company created the phrase. The lawsuit claims the trademark infringement began in 2010 when an "Own Your Power" headline appeared in O magazine.

Kelly-Brown says her company and Winfrey's both staged "Own Your Power" events just days apart.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

A spokesman for Winfrey released a statement saying they don't have enough information on the lawsuit to comment.
