Black Flag and FLAG Settle Trademark Lawsuit

In August of last year, Black Flag founder Greg Ginn—who is currently leading the Black Flag reunion project—sued his former bandmates Keith Morris, Chuck Dukowski, Dez Cadena, and Bill Stevenson. Along with Descendents guitarist Stephen Egerton, they’d started another Black Flag reunion project, called FLAG. Ginn claimed that the name “FLAG” and their logo were rights owned exclusively by his label, SST. Ginn sought an injunction against their tour, but lost.

Now a settlement has finally been reached in the trademark case, as The Hollywood Reporter notes. On April 10, both groups declared that they’d reached a settlement. “FLAG gets to be FLAG, and Black Flag as it is presently known continues to be Black Flag,” Evan Cohen, the attorney for Greg Ginn, told The Hollywood Reporter.
