Iron Maiden File Lawsuit Against Internet Counterfeiters

According to Trademarks & Brands Online, Iron Maiden have filed a lawsuit against Internet counterfeiters at the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Divisionon on January 23. The band have chosen to take action to stop them from infringing on their trademarks. The article goes on to say that the group are claiming that these online counterfeiters are “trading on the band’s reputation and goodwill” and that they are infringing on various US trademarks with “Iron Maiden” in their names. This affects the consumers who “have come to expect the highest quality from plaintiff’s products provided under the ‘Iron Maiden’ trademarks.” The band are now seeking a “permanent injunction against the online sellers, transfer of the domains, and either profits or $2 million for each infringing use.” They also want the court to make online outlets “disable and cease providing services for the defendants selling the counterfeit goods.”

Iron Maiden To Release “Light Brigade” Beer For Charity

Iron Maiden have joined forces with Robinsons Brewery yet again to make a 4.1% ABV English ale called “Light Brigade.“ It will be available on February 1 and a portion of the proceeds will go towards Help For Heroes, an organization that “supports those with injuries and illnesses attributable to their service in the British Armed Forces.” Pre-orders are available HERE.

Bruce Dickinson commented:

“We are very proud to have been asked to get involved. I have been an instructor on several of British Airways’ flight simulator ‘Flying Heroes’ days for Help For Heroes Veterans, so I know the charity and the work that they do well. Light Brigade is our interpretation of a golden ale that maintains the elements of strength and character that are the essence of Trooper but at a more sessionable level. In fact, the two beers complement each other very well.”

Iron Maiden Announce 2018 “Legacy Of The Beast” European/UK Tour With Killswitch Engage

Iron Maiden have announced the dates for their European/UK “Legacy Of The Beast” tour. Killswitch Engage will serve as support on select dates.

Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood commented:

“As our fans know, we’ve been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian re-joined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with ‘History/Hits’ tours.

We enjoy working this way for many reasons, not least because it gives the band a chance to play both new material and the older favourites which we know fans like to hear. It keeps things fresh, not just for the fans but for the band too.

For this History/Hits tour we decided to base the theme around the Legacy Of The Beast name, which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie!

I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but we’re working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show.”
