More than a law suit

More than a law suitThis week a Massachusetts federal jury rejected trademark claims the founder of the band Boston – who you might know from their greatest hit “More Than a Feeling” – brought against his former guitarist.
An eight-member jury ruled that Boston founder Tom Scholz did not prove a likelihood of confusion between the current incarnation of his band and guitarist Barry Goudreau’s later group Ernie and the Automatics when Goudreau was mentioned as a “former original” member of Boston.
Scholz argued that Goudreau, who left Boston in 1983, was bound by an agreement to call himself only “formerly of Boston,” and that Goudreau’s membership in his current band could have confused fans about the status of the still-touring Boston. The court disagreed.
“All I can say is I’m glad I was exonerated, but I’m disappointed I lost on the counterclaims,” Goudreau said after leaving the courtroom.
