First Keisha and now Mutya….
Via BBC News
Founding Sugababes member Mutya Buena has applied for ownership of the band’s name, her legal firm has confirmed.
The star, who quit the band in 2005, has applied to the European Trademarks Authority for permission.
Keisha Buchanan – the last of the original members – left last year. At the time Buena said: “It just means the Sugababes have ended.”
But speaking at a recent album launch, current Sugababe Heidi Range said their record company owned the band name. Continue Reading….
Oh dear the music industry just loves to confuse it’s artists.
But who really owns the Sugababes name/brand?
I have a sneaking suspicion that Universal does but I hope I’m proven wrong.

This can only end in laughter.:D
Remember Prince had to change his name to the symbol so he could record without Warners getting any money – and thats his actual name!! Don’t think this is gonna work for them as much as i would LOVE it too!
Doubt a lawyer would take it on unless they had a case tho…. we’ll see
@Melissa Delicious – the lawyers will probably get paid either way (prob’ly aint one of those “no win no fee” merchants!), so they don’t care
i would love to see the original 3 sugababes win. all three are on the application now. yep cause a storm
I’d love it if they won the right to thier name, crashed the ‘new’ sugababes, and then done a album together [the ORI’s] and out sell the the ‘newbies’ bay farrrrrr, …
never happen I know, but wish thinking lol
Apparently Keisha was not fired, the two girls left because they could not take it anymore and it was not worth it, life was too short to keep on living in that bad environment that keisha had created, which left Keisha a lone member of the band, lol, *wonders why they didn’t get new members to join keisha then* Either way, Keisha has been trashed and is looking like a trouble maker. Now, where is that tell all book. LOL
i would love to see the original babes, back 2 getter. I loved the Sugababes, back in the days. Anit realy feeling the new line-up or songs. So hope that the original babes wins.
