It’s always the drummer who gets the girl. In this case, the issue is with the guitarist. It seems that the founder of a band known as “Boston,” one Tom Scholz, sued a former guitarist for the band, one Barry Goudreau, for trademark infringement. Goudreau left Boston and formed a new group called “Ernie and the Automatics.”
We cannot get our head around this case. The U.S. District Court jury hearing the case – coincidentally in Boston – apparently could not either, since it rejected Mr. Sholz’s trademark infringement claim and also rejected the counterclaim for breach of contract filed by Mr. Goudreau.
Let the music play.
