    In previous posts, I was able to relate some trademarking going on for the NAME "Van Halen". A more thorough search yielded other interesting results.

    Last Year E.L.V.H., Inc. also applied for a large amount of trademarks for the 3 “VH” logos (old, new, new Tilted” VH logos) for all sorts of products. Who knows what it means, if anything, but still interesting. I combined them under date filed.

    Here they are.

    Yup. Sounds to me like a man moving on with a new project and protecting all assets for royalties. Ed & co. obviously saw the split coming and wanted to keep any potential lawsuits by WB at bay. Seems like a lot of work if the man was thinking retirement. I'll be expecting something in the works soon. Wolfie Records maybe? Thanx for the info Sarge! Seig Heil!(sic)

    SNORKELS?????????????????????????? [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    When was the last ttime anyone saw a "VH" snorkel? Is this really a large enough market to merit trademark protection?

    How come paper towel holders and toilet paper dispensers weren't on the list?

    Does this remind anyone else of the movie Space Balls?

    Space Balls: The Cereal
    Space Balls: The Bed Spread

    Where is?
    Van Halen: The music.

    For a band that didn't do a lot of marketing (compared to other artists of their magnitude), the sure had/have a lot of crap!

    If you ask me, they are getting ready for a merchandising frenzy. You don't go around applying for trademarks on all this shit unless you plan to sell it and you don't want other parties coming in to grab a piece of the pie. That's the bottom line.

    A tour is coming.

    Yes, and just think of the products that could be on the Trademark when DLR had a say...........
    Rubber Clothing, Whiskey, Spandex Clothing, Midget Clothing, Hair Conditioner, condoms, vasectomy kit....

    ExpandedConsciousness:

    WOW!!! HOLYFUCKINGFUCK!!! What kind of Twilight Zone am I living in? What kind of Viagra-Testosterone mix are these 50 year old + guys on? I never thought I'd hear another Dave and Eddie album again. If I did, I thought it would be a mid-paced affair like the Rolling Stones or later day AC/DC. After the TATTOO single I was ready for a poppy album from old guys, with a few nods to harder rock (She's A Woman and Bullethead) and I would have been happy with that.

    I NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE GETTING A FULL-THROTTLE HARD ROCK, HEAVY METAL, BALLS TO THE WALL, FUCKING VAN HALEN THRASH METAL ALBUM!!!
