They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I say money is. And if you’re Beyoncé, you agree, and imitation is gonna cost you. The Blast reports that Bey is about to settle a lawsuit she brought against a Texas company called Feyoncé which was selling a bunch of bridal crap (mugs, T-shirts, wince glasses etc, some with the phrase “put a ring on it” ) that used a similar font to the one Beyoncé prefers.

I’m not sure if these are made by the company in question, but you get the picture.

It’s a pretty blatant rip-off, but then again, it’s hardly hurting Beyoncé’s bottom line. A court date that was scheduled for November 1st has been canceled and “the parties have met and conferred regarding settlement and are currently involved in advanced negotiations that the parties anticipate will resolve this matter shortly.”

So it sounds like Feyoncé was outmaneuvered by Beyoncé, but the good news is that when Beyonce taketh away, she also giveth. Today she posted her annual Halloween homage to a legendary female artist, and this year’s winner was Toni Braxton. Bey went all out and recreated the cover of Toni’s 1993 debut single “Another Sad Love Song.” Now Toni Braxton is trending on Twitter and might be able to thank Beyoncé for helping her dig her way out from under another bankruptcy.

Here’s Beyonce’s “Phoni Braxton.”

Sending love and adoration to one of our talented legends. Thank you for the countless bops. Your tone, your beauty, your range, and your God-given talent is treasured. Loving you always. Have a Happy Halloween my Kings and Queens.

Thankfully, Toni was impressed.

In previous years, Beyonce has paid tribute to the likes of ‘Lil Kim and Salt-N-Pepa.

So with Beyoncé setting the precedent, it’s a free-for-all when it comes to people dressing up as Beyoncé. She may be able to put a stop to you wearing a Feyoncé sash at your bachelorette party, but she can’t stop you from dressing your baby up like Beychella Beyoncé.

Bring on the baby Beyonces!
