The legendary rock band Van Halen has started a remarkable legal battle in regard of the trademark VAN HALEN. The band filed oppositions against trademark applications of VAN HALEN by the ex-wife Kelly Van Halen (who was married to Alex Van Halen).
What we all know, having a certain name does not entitle you to use this name commercially. In this case however, Kelly Van Halen filed the trademark for amongst others chairs, children’s clothing and interior design services. You could say that confusion between the rock band Van Halen and a trademark for these products and services is not directly to be expected. So, there just might be some (old) emotions that play a role in this matter.
