Gibson, Heritage Drop Legal Claims
Gibson and Heritage have agreed to drop all legal claims against each other after reportedly reaching a confidential settlement.
In a Jan. 30 statement, Gibson said it is “pleased that the matter Heritage brought to Gibson has been dismissed.”
The statement continued by saying, “For 130 years, Gibson has invested in innovation and been at the forefront of guitar development and evolution. As the matter is now resolved, Gibson can move forward and focus on innovation with confidence. These investments and innovation are at the center of Gibson and are protected under Intellectual Property rights, commonly referred to as IP. Gibson’s unique designs are registered and trademarked shapes that are the exclusive property of Gibson. Most recently, the United States Courts ruled to protect Gibson’s intellectual property rights, upholding Gibson’s long-established and well-recognized trademarks.”
