AUTOGRAPH’s Steve Lynch has shared an important update in his legal battle over the band’s name
In the spirit of transparency, and in response to the numerous inquiries received, I wanted to provide an important and factual update…
I am pleased to share with you that on July 5th, The United States Patent and Trademark Office Trial and Appeal Board entered a judgement against Daniel Simoni (Simon Daniels) and Marc Weiland (known as the “applicants”), whereas the registration for the Trademark name “Autograph” they sought was refused and that my legal opposition to their application was supported in being sustained.
With this important legal VICTORY, we would like to thank first and foremost our Autograph Family - our incredible Fans! For 40 years, you have rocked and rolled with us, and that connection has never wavered, it has always propelled us to TURN IT UP!
Sincere thanks to our legal team at Lewis Roco, spearheaded by the incomparable expertise of Eric Kohli.
As we defend our position in this lawsuit, we remain committed to seeking the ultimate Justice-
that the INFRINGEMENT STOPS,
the violators be accountable for damages deemed and the legacy of Autograph honors my brothers Randy, Plunk, Ish and Keni.
Thank you for your love and continued support, it means the world!
Love to you all,
