Gorgoroth Trial Results

All kinds of news today. Some time ago, a dispute arose over who owned the trademark to the name Gorgoroth. On one side, the last remaining original member guitarist Infernus, and on the other side, vocalist Gaahl and drummer King ov Hell. Apparently King and Gaahl tried to kick Infernus out of the band and then King registered the trademark. The Oslo City District Court ruled that the trademark registration was not valid and therefore deleted it, that the two members excluded themselves from the band when they tried to fire Infernus. Infernus cannot be excluded from the band unless he quits due to his position as the last remaining original member.

I don't really care one way or the other, I like Gorgoroth, but they're not a favorite. Apparently King has been writing most of the music lately so I am not sure how Gorgoroth will continue to sound. But there is an album in the works, so I guess we'll find out.

My position on the legal issues falls in line with the judge. Infernus was an original member. He has the say in what happens with the band. If they don't like it, tough, form another band.
