Rock concert to benefit trademark preservation

In what may be the first time that intellectual property law prompted a rock band to reunite (or at least the first time that a band publicly admitted it), Bad Company, a staple of many classic rock radio playlists, is reuniting for a one-night show in reaction to a concern about losing their trademark rights.  As reported in several sources, lead singer Paul Rodgers stated that the purpose of the August 2008 show is for “cementing our rights to the trademark ‘Bad Company'” so that would-be imposters will be “liable for legal action.”  The concert would help the original band members demonstrate continued use of the BAD COMPANY mark (USPTO Reg. No. 2,564,177) in connection with entertainment services.
