They're delusional if they think they'll win that. They'll flunk over "confusion in the marketplace" again (i.e. there isn't any) and lack of defending the trademark until now-ish. Unless they can argue that the previous Gibson leadership was incompetent and that the new team should get a fresh start. That'd be interesting.
Oh, and IANAL.
Just a guy on a forum with opinions.
Great, another necropost. That aside, yeah both of those are real. The bottom one was made just for Mark Tremonti as a one-off thing for the thousand yasseahs.
Thanks, They’re not my thing but to each their own
They've gone after Kiesel and Dean so far. They've also made noise about Kiesel's single cuts. To their credit, Kiesel basically said, "Bring it on." The V they've challenged looks more like the Jackson Rhoads than anything Gibson has put out.
Tbh, I think it was more of an intimidation tactic than anything. They're trying to bully companies into dropping models that probably wouldn't be able to sue over. Kiesel is just calling their bluff. Hopefully Gibson backs down without too much of a fight.
It's pretty ridiculous, no matter what. Carvin/Kiesels can't even be seen in a store unless they're 2nd hand. So it's rather unlikely that a buyer is ever going to confuse them with a G. No big deal to me either way, companies do these things all the time.
But to add to the story, Kiesel is supposedly going after Harley Benton for infringement of their headless guitar trademarks. Or something.
Maybe Harley Benton will go after Barbie Benton?
This one actually makes sense. HB just released the Dullahan, whose body is pretty close to Kiesel's Osiris. I'm glad I nabbed one in case HB has to stop production. It is interesting though. HB's model has the body of the Osiris but the end of the neck looks remarkably like Strandberg's design, so HB could end up in double hot water. Obviously, I don't have any clue what either company's trademarks entail, nor am I a lawyer.
and the top was made for Billy Gibbons.
I’m still dreaming of the PRS ‘64 AC30 clone.
It would’ve looked better with the fur !
But in carbon fiber?
Nope. My amps almost never leave the studio. So I don’t much care how heavy they are, as long as they have wheels, or fit on a caster board to be moved around.
But if I was in a band....you bet!
No V for me. I had a flying V back in the day.
If somebody saw me wearing a flying V today they'd be asking what kind of statement I'm trying to make.
Dang. I saw the title of the thread and the author and figured if anyone had one it would be this guy.
Mine would have to be black and white, ala Michael Schenker. I love that dude.
that pink mess deserves a free trip to the bandsaw, sorry
