Just got this message from our friends at SST Records:

“The suit brought by SST Records and Greg Ginn against the members of Flag, which was filed in August 2013, has been settled, in an agreement signed by Greg Ginn, SST Records, and former Black Flag members Henry Rollins, Keith Morris, etc.

The pertinent settlement points are as follows:

·         The ownership of all of the recordings of Black Flag have been confirmed to Greg Ginn and SST Records.

·         All rights in the Black Flag name and logo have been confirmed to Greg Ginn and SST Records.

·         Henry Rollins and Keith Morris, who had surreptitiously attempted to register the Black Flag logo (the “bars’’) with the U.S. Trademark Office, have conveyed any rights they had in that trademark to Greg Ginn and SST Records.

.         Flag wil cease use of the Black Flag logo.

‘As was inevitable, this little bump in the road is out of the way and BLACK FLAG will continue as planned without the confusion.’   …Mike Vallely, singer BLACK FLAG.”
