Andy Powell Wins Legal Battle Over Wishbone Ash

10/30/2013
.
(Prog) Andy Powell's right to own the Wishbone Ash name has been upheld in court but his former bandmate Martin Turner is seeking to appeal the ruling. The title has been in dispute for years, with founding member Powell having registered it in 2000 and co-founder Turner having worked as Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash since 2004.

Turner wanted the registration to be declared invalid, arguing that Wishbone Ash was his "life's work" and he'd "never willingly left" the band. Powell countered that he'd continued to use the name since the outfit were formed in 1969 while Turner had "left twice to pursue other interests in 1987 and again in 1995."

Enterprise judge Douglas Campbell found in favour of Powell, saying in his 135-point ruling: "The Claimant [Powell] has since 1969 been a member of a large number of different band line-ups which have all traded as 'Wishbone Ash'. The Defendant [Turner] has been a member of some of these lineups, including those which span the band's most successful period of 1969 to 1981. A lot more details
