According to international media, the legendary rock band from the 80s Guns N’ Roses filed a lawsuit against a store for weapons and floral arrangements, whose name is Texas Guns and Roses, for fear that it would be related to the group with the business and that this could be detrimental to the musicians.
According to the documents, it is claimed that the owners of the store were sent a cease and desist letter in 2019, but they continue to “intentionally trade on the goodwill, prestige and fame of the band without the approval, license or consent of Guns N’ Roses”.
It is worth mentioning that this trade is not only dedicated to selling firearms, but also adopts political views related to the regulation and control of weapons, something that, of course, the gang totally disapproves of.
It takes political views related to the regulation and control of firearms and weapons on the website that can polarize many American consumers.
It is understood that the interpreters of november rain seek compensation for damages, but the amount of which is unknown. Not satisfied with this, they also want the store to change its name so that it is no longer linked to the band, since since 2019 a request was made to it and it has not complied.
Despite the fact that the lawsuit was filed a few days ago, experts say that the store’s website is currently no longer available. However, Texas Guns And Roses would have nothing to fear, because, according to the United States Patent and Trade Office, it applied for a trademark in 2016 and it took two years for it to obtain registration.
For his part, the trade defense lawyer declared that such evidence of confusion does not exist and that this is only an attempt by the gang to burn down the arms store.
Our client sells metal gun and flower safes and has a unique website and absolutely no one is confused. Nobody thinks that we are the band or that there is any affiliation. We will be fighting back.
