    Subject: Intellectual Property Rights Clarification



    From the lawyers....

    "There has been recent discussion as to the enforcement of the VH logos and
    5150 trademarks, and the Frankenstein design. The VH logos and 5150 have
    been registered as trademarks in the U.S. and other countries. The
    Frankenstein design is a U.S. registered copyright. Owners of
    intellectual property rights have the right to stop any infringement of
    their rights, however, our enforcement activities typically have targeted
    those who are infringing for their own commercial gain. These enforcement
    activities are not new.

    Here is the good news - if you want to use the Frankenstein design on a fan
    website, just become a licensee at NO CHARGE. In about a week, additional
    details about the process will be made available through
    www.van-halen.com. One of the conditions for a Frankenstein license will
    be that you agree not to use the VH logos or 5150 mark, or sell anything
    with the Frankenstein design.

    To sum up, we are asking that all use of the VH logos and 5150 mark come to
    a stop. All unauthorized use of the Frankenstein design must also stop,
    however, we will be licensing the Frankenstein design for use on fan sites."

    In VH we trust,

    and they changed there tune a little since I talked to her on Monday. That's a good thing
    but it's still a little to far with the fan sites as far as I'm concerned.

    Ok, so what he's saying is that, if you become a licensee, you can use the frankenstein, but you can't sell it? WTF!! I don't get it.

    This doesn't make any sense? You mean, just to paint my POS harmony guitar with red and white stripes I have to get a license? What's next? Are we going to have to get a license to listen to Van Halen now too?
    Your favorite band sucks.
