Nevermind, The ENTOMBED Trademark Lawsuit Isn't Over

LG Petrov isn't out of this yet.

LG Petrov isn't out of this yet.

We figured when a Swedish court ruled in favor of Alex Hellid, Uffe Cederlund, and Nicke Andersson over vocalist LG Petrov for the ongoing Entombed trademark lawsuit, that was it. We also wondered what would happen with Petrov's Entombed A.D., since the name clearly used the word Entombed in it.

Now in a statement from Petrov's attorney, he says the lawsuit isn't over and Petrov can steal appeal the ruling. The statement was also given to a Swedish site, so you'll just have to excuse the awful Google translate.

“It is unfortunate misinformation circulated after the two judgments of the Patent and the Market announced last week and the related rights to the band name in different classes of goods. The Court’s decision is unfortunate in many ways, and largely incomprehensible. Regardless of what one thinks of the decisions, the effect of them not to brand and band name belongs to Alex and former band members. The decisions are not final and can be appealed.

“LG’s and other band’s attitude is that the band name belongs to band together and Alex have been invited to enter on trademark registration. The same applies to former band members. Alex approach so far has been that he should own name, and he treats the rest of the band, including LG who has been a member since it was formed, as if they had no rights. LG and the rest of the band still hoping for a solution out of court and presented several proposed settlement, continues.”

So now we wait to inform you of that outcome, and then be told that we're wrong again and someone else is doing something legal-related that would change the ultimate outcome.
