    This was posted to another list by Brad Starks
    from Eds Lawyers, it seems they have changed there tune a little on the fan sites, when I talked to her on Monday it was a definate "they will be asked to remove the logos even if they are not selling something " I believe all the backlash had something to do with it I know They were reading these message boards.
    BTW Hi Michelle [img]tongue.gif[/img]
    anyone been to their website she's Kinda cute.

    now they want you to register FOR FREE to be licensed and you can't sell anything VH related
    with stripes or use the 5150 or VH logo etc etc read for yourself,
    BTW Pumkinhead I wrote this letter myself
    Rol.

    Still BS to me about the fan sites.

    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,

    Brad

    i think that's a reasonable request. it would be different if they tried to tie in a stipulation that says "you can't say anything bad about any VH member, past or present." THAT would be a travesty of justice...

    Wonder what the license charge would be to sell items with the stripes and/or VH logo?

    </font>[/QUOTE]see Chelle your just a fan with a message board, it does not hurt one bit to use that on your site
    as I have said before and you know from our private conversations, I understand the replica guitar sites such as mine, I do not understand going after the Fan sites, totally silly.
    and I'm sorry you have to change.

    I just sanitized my site last night. I have a little more to do to remove the vh logos from my roll over graphics. Shit.. that will take me hours... Guess it's time for a re-design or just dump the site and go private. http://www.vhvault.com/~fullbugaz

    Just alter the logo somehow like Kiss does when they play or sell something in Germany...scan each "Van Halen" like it appears on the album covers...or put 2 or 4 wings on the logo...free fuckin' country.

    At this point I don't have no patience to go through and find all the VH logos I have on the site and remove, rebuild, and redeisgn. Pretty much all the fan sites will become extremely sterile and boring with the entire VH personalities removed from them. For me the fun in keeping this place is certainly gone with this latest development if it does come to fruition, which it appears it will. Likely this will be the end of the line for this site. Being dictated to like this for simply running a place for VH fans to gather is just not worth it to me.

    The goal of this whole ordeal to me was to ruin the VH internet network of sites and fans so that the official site truly is the ONLY word on Van Halen, and that's that. Well that is that, certainly for me.
