Cro-Mags trademark solely belongs to Harley Flanagan now

John Joseph has been barred from using any derivate of the trademark

cro mags harley

Harley Flanagan sued former singer John Joseph a few years ago, asking the court to prevent Joseph from using the Cro-Mags trademark. John Joseph was granted a license to use the "Cro-Mags JM" mark after Flanagan asserted ownership of the mark.

John Joseph was sued by Flanagan earlier this year for once again violating the Cro-Mags trademark and the settlement agreement. Flanagan alleged that Joseph used the mark Cro-Mags JAM, which was outside of the license/settlement agreement.

On September 30, papers were filed in the Southern District of New York Federal court settling this new matter. In exchange for a permanent injunction, Joseph agreed not to use the Cro-Mags mark, the Cro-Mags JM mark, or any derivative thereof. The Cro-Mags mark may only be used by Flanagan as of today. Hopefully, this issue appears to be resolved at last.

Hopefully this will bring the yearly Cro-Mags related stabbings back down to zero.

Maybe he'll do another YouTube vid where he struggles to read the legal brief, only to take his glasses off and pose hard in front of the camera at the end like a true 50-IQ simpleton.

I've said it once and I'll say it again. UNDERRATED AS HELL and one of the most talented vocalist ever. Much love

Cro-Veins Good for him though, good vocalist and songwriter

So much work to own the rights to such a shitty band.

anonymous 10/5/2022 1:31:32 PM

Some people think this band was good or relevant one point in history. It really wasn't.

anonymous 10/5/2022 1:33:40 PM

18-year-olds who google "old school punk bands" and fully-tatted 55-year-old unemployed former grease monkeys/weed dealers ("before it was legal lol") with dumb forced nicknames like Billy Bizarre and Sammy the Spider are stoked.

rick_tocchet 10/5/2022 2:02:18 PM

He should just use HO/MO -MAGS and just let the cat out of the bag totally.

Peter Rono here… sole trademark holder of the phrase "emo-core revival". SYSC may also be gay but they're all white-ish so listening to them is enabling people like Kanye to spew hate speech.

Good. JJ is a anti-vax chud

anonymous 10/5/2022 3:01:28 PM

Cro maga. Band sucks in every form

anonymous 10/5/2022 3:05:29 PM

I just can't get through to you Despite all settlement negotiations I try or any of the things I do Maybe I'd be better off talking to neutral third party arbitrator 'Cause you ain't making any conciliatory gestures at all I'm motioning and I'm petitioning And I'm objecting and I'm submitting evidence But I just ain't getting through to you! I'm cross examining and I'm approaching the bench And I'm registering formal complaints and I'm standing on lengthy precedents But I just ain't getting through to you!

anonymous 10/5/2022 3:12:37 PM

Am I just wasting, just wasting all the money in my legal defense fund 'Cause I ain't wasting an amicus brief on you or any of your kind If you had any competent legal representation you would open your mind But, I guess you're juts afraid of a motion to dismiss on the grounds of insufficient evidence I just can't get through to you Despite all the affidavits I file I try or any of the things I do Maybe I'd be better off talking to an appeals court judge 'Cause you ain't making contingent claims at all I'm suing and I'm countersuing And I'm relying on expert testimony and I'm pleading the fifth But I just ain't getting through to you! I'm and I'm talking It's a mistrial!

anonymous 10/5/2022 3:23:29 PM

JJ just flipped his wig

anonymous 10/5/2022 3:38:51 PM

Band is worse than lambgoat. Just kidding they can't be that bad. But close.

Harley is the cro mags, anyone born before 1980 knows it. JJ is a hack and a swindler.

anonymous 10/5/2022 4:43:31 PM

I like JJ's books.

Did you guys only sell that one furnace fest shirt? You know the one where you posted a pic of the guy that bought it?

Joseph used to steal from fans n supporters homes who gave band place to stay

anonymous 10/5/2022 7:06:03 PM

lol imagine being such a f*ckup that you lose your bandname because you just HAVE to be called JAM. jj already got away with the court splitting the baby, but just had to ruin it by go full retard.

anonymous 10/5/2022 10:29:45 PM

How many of you dipshits did Harley hire to suck his dick in these comments?

the winner of this lawsuit received a partially used "fleshlight." and a Cro-Mags plays your favorite lullabyes cd.(it is just the sound of a cash register ringing over & over again.)Autographed knife blades will be given out to the twenty-fifth purchasee. Along with a pair of lightly piss soiled underwear, courtesy of Harley's wife.

Good way to flatten the curve of the Cromag on Cromag epidemic of violence.

Oh well, gives JJ more time to write his sissy vegan manifestos.

anonymous 10/6/2022 11:11:29 AM

Harley, for all his faults and cringe, has something that at least from a distance that seems genuinely likable, I find myself rooting for him. JJ seems like the kind of guy who would line every person who's ever drank a milkshake or had a slight disagreement with him up against the wall if he was given a chance.

anonymous 10/6/2022 12:05:55 PM

Put aside the drama and court bs. The Age of Quarrel is the best HC record ever written, and the Cro-Mags are one of the most influential bands in HC. Never relevant? Get your heads out of your @sses.

anonymous 10/6/2022 12:42:28 PM


anonymous 10/6/2022 1:17:58 PM

harley the lawsuit flannel man, the records that pretend band has put out in recent years...oh dear.

anonymous 10/6/2022 5:47:27 PM

Age of Quarrel was great. Cromags certainly paid their dues and earned their place in NYHC I like both Harley and JJ. A lot of those NYHC get a little nauseating sometimes, tho. ( Hey, most New Yorkers are f*cking annoying). They should of just played a few shows together

Pretty hilarious to see how badly each of these guys wants to hold onto the year 1986. By the time each of them are dead they'll have each spent 40+ years of their lives fighting over something that was good for like 3 months of actual life time.

anonymous 10/7/2022 6:50:43 AM

Havent really ever seen any mention of Parris in these back and forth trademark tales. I always thought he and HF held the rights to "Cro-Mags" 50/50; I assume Parris sold his half to HF a while ago?
