Milk Studios has filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against Samsung, which it says "intentionally, willfully, and knowingly" used the Milk name despite a business partnership with Milk Studios. Samsung launched Milk Music, a music-streaming service, earlier this year and followed it up just this month with Milk Video. Milk Studios, which produces music and other media, asked Samsung to stop using the Milk name for its products in March, but Samsung refused. Milk Studios says Samsung partnered with it on 18 different occasions since 2006, which gave Samsung "personal knowledge" about the company. Milk Studios claims Samsung's use of the name has caused "immediate and irreparable harm," such as business partners assuming Milk Studios was running Milk Music for Samsung. Samsung didn't immediately respond to the lawsuit.

why EITHER would fight over such a stupid name is beyond me..

Makes no sense
I don't know what was wrong with the old name....call it 'Samsung Music' or 'Galaxy Music' or something....'Milk' is just stupid...

And it is not a bad app either, it has good radio stations, that can be finely tuned to exactly you want to hear.......

...Cows throughout the world are being issued cease and desist orders.

OK, apples and oranges I know. Samsung's probably wrong because what does Milk have to do with music, anyway?
They should change the name, not only is it apparently copyright protected, but it is a dumb name for a music app.
