Unofficial GNR Social Media Update / Discussion

Recommended Posts

Sad thing that GNR is turning into KISS if it comes to lawsuits and trademarks. 

The whole case with beer is a hugely stupid move from the GNR camp.

In fairness Rose has always been a litigious fella. He'd sue himself if given the chance.

I wonder if they already sued the pants off of the cheese people? 

In both cases Axl and Del-the-Smell just demanded payment in kind in the form of beer and cheese :P "Give me my cheese homefuck, you dig what Im saying? Owwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!" :lol:

I love to listen to the intro of 'So Fine' before I go to bed so I can hear the 'oh's' and 'ah's' before I hit the hey. 

I’m glad to hear someone else say so! (Assuming you’re serious?!) Axl basically making sex noises is a recording I’m very happy to have. :wub:

Axl nails just about all the covers he has ever been involved in. Such a versatile voice that he can put his own spin on a song and take it to another level. 

Except Black Hole Sun, that one is embarrassing. But the song isnt exactly good anyway so it was hard to save.

I'm not sure if they have grounds to sue the cheese, as it uses a song title which is not a trademark like the band name. Maybe only for using their likeness, but I'm not sure about this either.

The lawsuit/complaint to the US Trademark Office for the beer was filed by Axl, Slash and Duff as partners. Here is the document:

https://tsdrsec.uspto.gov/ts/cd/casedocs/pdf/proxy?url=http://ttabvue.uspto.gov/ttabvue/ttabvue-91247205-OPP-1.pdf

As the article says, the brewery company abandoned its application for registration of the trademark. Document:

Maiden had their own beer on tap for a while not sure if they still do 'The Trooper' I believe it is called. Maybe a route for Guns to take..."Pint of Jungle please'.

Right on. The Pitchfork article posted earlier in the thread mentioned that the brewery indicated it would continue selling the beer for almost a year (until March 2020). I take that as meaning they will continue to sell the beer with the current Guns N' Rose branding even without the trademark? Unless the article was lazily researched/written that is - the article has been posted 22 hours and the brewery abandoned their application prior to that as it was filed on May 1/19. Perhaps the brewery made that statement after receiving the infringement claim but before giving in and abandoning their tm application.

If abandoning the TM application was not one and the same as discontinuing the beer, then I suppose Axl/Slash/Duff could choose to enforce their successful claim and/or take other legal actions?

Is it common for a band to use print outs of Wikipedia as exhibits in a case? Wouldn’t you think there would be more official records?

Yeah, this seems to be the case. Probably the brewery company has already done deals and orders, so they want to continue with the Guns N' Rose branding without the trademark, so GN'R filed a lawsuit. I posted a link to the lawsuit in the relevant thread.

True, lol. I've had some misadventures behind the wheel so I can relate but a lot of these guys are bad drivers.  Ace Frehley and Billy Joel come immediately to mind.

That guy getting the autograph is wearing an Oakland A's hat so maybe it's in the bay area.

I think it's during the Illusions tour, 91 or 92.
