    Default High School Uses VH symbol

    Ok, it's been a hell of a long time since I've started a new thread! So, if this is here somewhere (no I didn't spend a lot of time looking) forgive me; and cut a member since 00 some slack! Anyway, here's a cool story I found about a high school using "VH" as their logo: http://highschool.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1120102

    ENJOY!

    That's really strange. Van Halen doesn't seem to be cool with anything. Everytime I hear things like that, it's Van Halen suiing or threatening to sue.

    So he wrote a letter to the band's label, Warner Brothers, and got a letter back saying the band was cool with it. (Really, you expected something else from Van Halen?)

    Um... kinda, yeah! That's good to hear they were cool with it. I'm all for protecting your artistic and intellectual property, but Ed & Co. have been especially finicky in recent years when it comes to stripes and other trademarked material.

    Maybe since its a high school and not related to music is the reason why they are ok with it. I can see Eddie's point about the stripes. If somebody is using them, he should get paid because he it is his licensed trademark. It's the law.

    Anyway it's cool that the band didn't say no.

    I imagine the asking of permission first smoothed things over somewhat.
    Quite different if they just went ahead and did it. That goes a long way. Besides....it's such a recognizable distinctive logo, and the association can't hurt. If anything it's indirect promotion of the band. "Hey look! it's the Van Halen logo!"
    I think it's real cool!

    Beat me to the punch. I caught that paragraph too and my reaction was damn near identical.

    Maybe Ed himself doesnt have an issue with it, but I'm willing to bet there's a lawyer seething in Burbank somewhere just waiting for the go-ahead to sue the tits off the place.

    From the article:
    ...And for a while, he admits, the school did play into the idea, allowing the band's music to be part of its identity.

    "We played some of their stuff during the pregame warmups," Monken said.

    The parents still embrace the connection, but it's faded a bit for the kids over the years.

    "I grew up with them, I love their stuff, but we let the kids use their music now," Monken said. "I don't make them listen to my music."

    They may not recognize it if he did. After all, many of the band's biggest hits came more than a decade before many of the current students were born....
    My first thought was along the lines, "Man the kids don't realize how COOL it is to wear that symbol and have the team blast RWTD and ATBL during pregame..."

    Then I sort of mentally put myself in their place. It 1985 and we are instead forced to wear ELVIS logo on the helmet and listen to "You ain't nothin' but a HOUND Dog" and "Blue Suede Shoes" during pregame instead of =VH=. Yeah, it would seem a little bit lame!

    WB owns the original logo that Ed is using to whitewash the past. In a perfect world... Ed is fleecing Dave for the magic it conveys, as he conspires to bend it into rings again.

    Since they are football players, and thus, are all wearing cups, Eddie decided that it was not worth it.

    This school is only a few miles from my house. It's awesome to see that out on the field.
