LG Petrov’s Legal Representative Says Decision In Entombed Trademark Dispute Is Not Final And Can Be Appealed

It was previously reported that the legal dispute between Entombed’s Alex Hellid, Uffe Cederlund, and Nicke Andersson, and their former singer LG Petrov regarding the Entombed trademark had officially been settled with the Swedish Court of First Instance ruling in favor of Hellid, Cederlund, and Andersson. Despite this, it seems the dispute is not quite over with after all. Petrov and Entombed A.D.’s lawyer Helene Hillerström Miksche has told musikindustrin.se that the descion is actually not final, and that they have the opportunity to appeal.

Here’s Miksche’s statement:

“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”

Hellid, Cederlund, and Andersson told Blabbermouth the following:

“Naturally we are delighted with the decision of the courts. It’s a great relief that this issue is now finally ruled on and we can return to focusing on giving people more Entombed. We have discussed ideas and plans of what we want to do and look forward to working together on creating the best possible Entombed for the future, both in the recording studio and in a live setting.”

Ulf “Uffe” Cederlund On The Possibility Of Playing More Shows With Original Entombed Members: “We Have No Plans Whatsoever”

Original Entombed members Alex Hellid, Ulf “Uffe” Cederlund, and Nicke Andersson recently reunited to play on the Close-Up Båten cruise, and to perform “Clandestine” in its entirety at Malmö Live in Malmö, Sweden. However, these shows, which also featured ex-Morbus Chron members Robert Andersson and Edvin Aftonfalk, may only be one-off dates, according to Uffe.

He told Tough Riffs the following, when asked about future shows

“We have no plans whatsoever. I’m not sure if we ever will do something again. It depends what turns up. I’m not sure if we’re a band or not. I mean, me, Nicke and Alex are somehow Entombed in my eyes. If we do something again, I really hope that Edvin and Robert are interested again because it worked out so good. I can’t see us on the road again. We’ll see. Right now we have other things to take care of.”

He also commented on the possibility of new music:

“We have talked about it but I’m not sure if it’s going to happen. Maybe someday if we have spare time and a lot of ideas for songs. It would be interesting to do it one day. All of us are super busy with other stuff in life, bands, children, work and so on.”

“I don’t think it’s that important to do another Entombed album. I would be happy to keep on playing the ‘Clandestine’ album forever, if we do shows.”

He did add that the band re-recorded some early material, but he is unsure if that will see the light of day.
