    I honestly don't know what to think anymore. It makes sense but with no official word on Ed and Val we can only speculate.

    true

    but why do all that trademarking stuff now? kinda makes sense to me now, even though we haven't gotten an official word. all of vh seemed to shut down right round the time of the rumors didn't they?

    i don't think ed has any plans for the band at all right now. unfortunately, i can see why

    I doubt the trademarking has anything to do w/ divorce... California is a community property state... so even if he trademarked everything in his name... division of property would still split down the middle.

    Ed's split w/ his previous attorney and the fact that his current law firm specializes in intelectual property law would indicate to me that Ed's got someone taking care of his rights and legal ownership of what is rightfully his. I'll speculate that in the past Ed's focus was on music and party plus he probably didn't have legal representation that was working with his interests in mind....

    There's huge money in licensing and intelectual property rights have grown extremely complicated... so it appears to me to be a natural move.

    If I had to wager, I'd say the recent split with WB brought this all about. Eddie probably experienced first hand a massive nightmare of legal entanglements as far as who owns what on a deal that started with four young rookies in the mid '70s.

    I'd imagine after that I would want everything black and white for a while.

    I doubt it's about the divorce since they've been separated so long and still haven't filed for divorce...

    i think it has something to do with it, and this also could be why we have not heard anything on what vh is up to i think we will hear something on the band soon, and i wish eddie and val and wolfie the best.
    van halen shall return. what you think is nothing might be something after all.
