    From the attorneys:

    "A Trademark & Copyright Licensing Policy ("Policy") has been created to establish the permissible use of the Frankenstein Design, Franky Design and Original Frank Design collectively, "Artwork"), as well as the VH logos. If you are interested in using the Artwork and/or VH logos, please read the Policy and related FAQs in their entirety.

    Policy: http://www.van-halen.com/newsite/tcla.html
    FAQ: http://www.van-halen.com/newsite/tclafaq.html

    In general, the Policy permits the use of the Artwork and VH logos on fan websites so long as the fan websites follow the guidelines set out in the Policy. No commercial use of the Artwork or VH logos is permitted. This means that any website, which has the primary purpose of selling anything, is not eligible to make any use of the Artwork and/or VH logos.

    Fan websites that are selling items which they created with the Artwork and/or VH logos, may continue selling their existing inventory (excluding guitars and guitar parts) until August 15, 2002; however, you may only sell these items online via your fan website.

    If you do not accept the terms of the Policy, simply cease all use of the Artwork and VH logos by May 31, 2002, and do not use them in the future. If you provide written confirmation of your acceptance of the terms of the Policy, we will provide you with a written waiver of any and all claims of infringement of which we were aware prior to May 13, 2002. Please direct any correspondence regarding the Policy to: licensing_administrator@van-halen.com."

    Here are the FAQ's

    1) What does the Policy let me do?
    2) Why should I follow the Policy?
    3) Can I sell anything with the Artwork or VH logos?
    4) I've already invested in items with the Artwork and/or VH logos that I want to sell. What can I do with my inventory?
    5) My fan website has a classifieds section that lets people post advertisements to buy and sell VAN HALEN related items, some of which may have the VH logos, VAN HALEN, and/or 5150 marks. Is this permitted?
    6) Can I get a license to sell goods with the Artwork and/or the VH logos, VAN HALEN and/or 5150 marks?
    7) Who should I contact if I have a question about the Policy?
    8) What abouth the Frankenstein Design that I have tattooed on my ass?

    Interesting. Eddie controls the market on intersecting lines on a colored background. I can't even believe that. Whatever.

    Brett, I know you are frustrated, but Eddie's control over the intersecting lines is limited to the arrangement of white and black lines on a red background, with the white and black lines having to generally approximate the arrangement that is well known.

    In truth, the trademark is not that broad. It is just a very famous trademark. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    It seems it also applies to black and white stripes and the black and yellow stripes, as well.

    I don't think us simply changing the color of the guitar stripes in our logo to like green, yellow, and blue for instance would make any difference.

    Not that it really matters, you don't use the logos or the stripes on your site anyway, you're smart.

    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.
