Taylor Swift is prepared to go to war with a website called Celebrity Jihad ... claiming she was wrongly identified in a "leaked" nude photo ... and now she's threatening to sue their asses.

The photo in question features a topless woman who bears a resemblance to Swift under the headline, "Taylor Swift Topless Private Pic Leaked?"

Swift's lawyers are pissed -- and fired over a letter to the site demanding it take down the post immediately ... or else she'll sue for trademark infringement.

In the letter, Team Swift says the site contains, "false pornographic images and false 'news" about the singer.

A rep for the site tell us the blog is considering its options. Swift's people had no comment.

Well unfortunately for Tay and most public figures, the media is protected under law for opinions and satire. If we were not then TMZ would have been shut down a long time ago along with Perez Hilton and a host of other sleaze reporting sites. She can't win this case if they pursue it.

Follow us on Twitter @DisneyInfoNet for non-sleaze reporting and check us out at DisneyInfoNet.com

Not her, damn the luck. This girl's upper lip is shaped wrong and if I'm too good to lay on a bed in a room with paneling on the walls, I'm sure she is too!

I looked at the picture that is "supposedly" Taylor Swift and while it does look like her-it is definitely NOT her.

Its clearly not her in the photo. Any moron can see that. The girl in the photo has ample sized breasts , Taylor has tiny little bumps.

If you search Google images for "Taylor Swift Naked" tons of fake images appear. Why is this one fake photo causing issues ?

I believe the question mark in the headline actually means that they aren't claiming it's Taylor Swift, and can get the site out of having to pay.
That's the top rule of Tabloid Writing 101! Add a question mark to any statement that you can't prove. You can get away with anything.

Not right to do that to her. Not Fair, Not Right, Not Legal. Hope she puts them out of business.

Oh lawd    

Ha! Did you see the room the "Swift look alike" is in? It's a cluttered and messy low rate apartment or dorm. Let alone it only looks like Swift but it's obviously not her. But besides the girl not looking like TS the room the photo is taken in is a room I would never be caught DEAD in let alone famous, topless, and alive.
