"In 1995, Misfits
founding member Jerry Only secured the exclusive legal right to tour and
record as the Misfits, and, in accordance with those legal rights,
launched a licensing program through Cyclopian Music. At the same time,
Glenn Anzalone—professionally known as Glenn Danzig (former co-founder
and Misfits vocalist circa 1977 to 1983) —made clear that he wanted no
public association with the Misfits or Cyclopian Music’s business
knowledge of Cyclopian Music’s use of the Misfits’ name and logos for
decades, Glenn Danzig curiously filed a lawsuit on April 3rd, 2014
seeking a portion of the proceeds from Cyclopian Music’s activities with
which he has had no involvement whatsoever. Danzig’s lawsuit can only
be described as a sour grapes tantrum based on outrageous allegations,
the majority of which are completely false, while others are ill
conceived and grossly misguided—and will be proven false in court.
Reports of Glenn Danzig’s lawsuit and the falsehoods within it, however,
have resulted in the dissemination of misinformation regarding the
nature of Glenn Danzig’s baseless claims and Cyclopian Music’s rights.
For example, Jerry Only and Cyclopian are under no
obligation, legal, contractual or otherwise, to obtain consent, or
approvals of any kind, from former member Glenn Danzig in connection
with their use of the Misfits name or logos. Apparently Danzig’s own
product line doesn’t sell as well as he might like, but the fact of the
matter remains that Jerry Only and Cyclopian Music’s Misfits licenses,
business activity and merchandising endeavors are 100% lawful and
consistent with their legal rights.
To be clear, Glenn Danzig has
no legal right to, and no interest in, Cyclopian’s Misfits licenses or
business ventures period. Danzig’s lawsuit is nothing more than a
calculated attempt to unfairly and improperly enrich himself from
revenue streams to which he is not entitled."
