In case you haven't been keeping up on your punk rock lawsuits, back last August one of the founding members of Black Flag, Greg Ginn, sued his former bandmates Keith Morris, Dez Cadena, Chuck Dukowski, and Bill Stevenson who had recently reunited under the moniker FLAG. Ginn believed that he and his label, SST Recordings, exclusively owned the rights to the Black Flag name, logo, and recordings. The case has finally been settled, with Ginn getting what he wants: FLAG can no longer use the Black Flag logo. A press release states that Ginn will retain “ownership of all of the recordings of Black Flag” and “all rights in the Black Flag name and logo.”

The latest Black Flag frontman, Mike Vallely, released a statement as well saying “As was inevitable, this little bump in the road is out of the way and Black Flag will continue as planned without the confusion.” So, all is well and good in both camps. Phew!
