Cro-Mags trademark solely belongs to Harley Flanagan now
John Joseph has been barred from using any derivate of the trademark
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.
