Greg Ginn Explains Black Flag Lawsuit Against Former Bandmates

08/12/2013
.
Black Flag founder Greg Ginn has addressed the controversy surrounding his decision to sue his former bandmates Henry Rollings and the other members performing under the Flag banner.

Ginn explains: "The dispute over Black Flag is not motivated by an effort to stop anyone from covering Black Flag songs. Quite to the contrary. this dispute began when Henry Garfield (Rollins) and Keith Morris made an effort to hijack the name and the logo for their own use.

"Behind everyone's back, in September 2012, Garfield and Morris filed fraudulent trademark applications in which they are claiming to own the name and the logo.

"Had we not taken action, this pair could have snuck these false applications through the Trademark Office, enabling them to stop Black Flag from playing and gaining exclusive use of the name and logo for themselves.

"We are also trying to stop Morris and the others in his band from using the name and the logo in a misleading way, and from selling bootleg items."
