Our controversial Horns Design

Our controversial Horns Design…..

Horns BLK T

Billy Biohazard from the hardcore band BIOHAZARD is wearing our controversial Horns T-shirt design, which was one of our first ever designs and has caused controversy ever since.

We own the European Trade mark for this design as well as the world copyright and as a natural progression of our aspiring designs, we dared to trade mark it in the USA as NO ONE had ever trade marked the horns hand logo there before.  We felt confident all would be fine however one hell of a fight with the University of texas ensued!!

After a year long battle, the threat of being sued and taken to court in texas (like that would be a fair trial!) and $25,000 in lawyers fees, we had to agree to drop our trademark claim in the USA.  Nevertheless, we managed to negotiate several important points;

  1. we were able to sell in the USA but NOT in texas,
  2. they would NOT steal or use our Horns design and
  3. not object to my USA copyright of the design.

The big downside is that we had to agree to let them trade mark an inferior version of OUR horns design which we believe was completed in 2014, a full 5 years after our design was first registered in Europe!

As a result, ALL of our horns designs are BANNED in texas but not the other US states.  So much for “land of the FREE,” eh!!!  These actions have NOT deterred us but instead have inspired us to create a new brand….BANNED IN TEXAS…which will offer Americans the opportunity to purchase our Horns Designs state side.

If you are interested in purchasing a horns design T-shirt, visit our webstore!  We are able to deliver to any state apart from texas.

Do you own a retail store and want to carry our designs?  We have printers in LA who can print all our designs for retail outlets not located in texas.  If you are interested, or know someone who may be, please contact us at info@stainedclassmerch.com

LONG LIVE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL!!!! \m/
