    Just thought I would browse a little before I unplugged... just read over at Yahoo groups something Brad just posted recently!!!! He says that fan based sites WILL be able to license the use of the VH logo, I assume as long as you're not selling anything, along with the Frankinstein artwork! WOW.... are they actually starting to get it???? I'm still gonna unplug for a week or so... but this is great news! The only shame of this is that the whole situation could have been handled a LOT better by VH's PR, if there is such a thing! Have a great week everyone... I need a break from all this.... CYA!

    Yep, here's the message...

    "A decision has been made to also permit fan web sites to license the use
    of the trademarked Van Halen logo on their web sites. This will be covered
    in the same licensing agreement as the Frankenstein design that will be
    made available at www.van-halen.com in approximately one week."

    In VH we trust,

    I'm sure there will be a clarification in next months GOLF DIGEST.

    I told you so
    Now don't get ahead of yourself. I'm sure the only reason for this is because of the fan backlash. There weren't any facts out there that we were missing. They just didn't expect the backlash to be what it was. It was just a few hours ago that they said that the sites would not be permitted to use the logo and artwork.

    Sometimes its a case of not seeing the trees for the forest.

    They might have been so focused on the big picture (the people who are making money) that they didn't really think through the ramifications of including the Fan sites in their restrictions.

    I was just going to write to Brett and suggest that he ask for permission despite what the lawyers had originally requested... the worse they could say would be no, and you never know, they might say yes. When people request a copyright release from me, once I know what their intent is, I'll release it depending on the circumstances.

    Believe me, they saw us going nuts on here and then made the decision to change it. We were directly responsible, I know it.

    Had it been necessary for me to seek permission to use the logos, I definitely would have gone that route, before giving up yes. Luckily it seems, none of us will have to do that.
