The ’80s rocker filed a lawsuit against Michaels Stores Inc., accusing the retailer of selling T-shirts with the phrase “Bad to the Bone” on it, the title of his 1982 smash hit.
Michaels operates a chain of arts-and-crafts stores, sells products to make a “Bad to the Bone t-shirt” on its website.
Thorogood has been marketing T-shirts, jackets and hats, using “Bad to the Bone”, which he registered as a trademark back in 1983, right after his hit. S-s-s-smart!
It seems like a can’t-lose-case. But that’s just the opinion of M-m-m-MarkMatters.com.
