Something else I was just thinking about...Tate's voice is shot and he must know that (at least one would think), so if he fought tooth and nail for the name and did happen to win, how long could he possibly go on as QR anyway? Surely not long. I wonder if he's taking this into consideration at all or if he's really such a narcissist as to not know any better. The guy truly baffles me.

I don't think Tate's too concerned about putting out a performance that justifies the name Queensryche, as exemplified by what he's touring with now. As long as he gets the name, he'd be happy to croak out songs barely recognizable from their original form, if the paychecks keep coming.

Seems you are right. Man I hope he doesn't get the name. It would be a crying shame and such an injustice to the real Ryche. For awhile after everything went down I was pretty numb to everything that was happening because I felt that the guys pretty much let the Tates run them into the ground, but now that they are back in all their glory with Todd at the mic I'm feeling more passionate about it. The real Queensryche must get the name!

I hope that Tate does not get the name.

It all depends on the judge as the recent ruling on the similar Wishbone Ash case shows.

Martin Turner is appealing apparently.   This could drag on for some time.  I hope the same doesn't happen to QR.

As long as a settlement is worked out and it doesn't go to trial, Tate won't get the name exclusively to himself. There's no way Todd and the gang would allow that to happen. We should only worry about Tate having a chance at getting the name if it does go to trial.

If it came to a situation of buying out Geoff for the name, I imagine it would be easier for three to buy out one, but would there be an option for Todd and or Parker to assist in the buyout, giving them a piece of the name/band? FIVE could more easily buy out than three alone. Spreading it out would strain their collective finances a little less and would reaffirm in a way a solidarity with this line-up.

Hell, put me in for a C-note!  ;D

Yeah, if this ends in settlement, Whip and the boys are getting the name. I don't see how Tate in his present state will be able to pay off all three of them, especially since he'd have to throw in a lot of sweeteners to convince them. The only way Tate has a chance is in trial.

Unfortunately, though, they'll have to give him something. The shareholders agreement has actual specifications on how big the QR name can be in comparison to Tate's (something like 1/4 of the size of his own name), so they may be able to put stipulations on that as well.

A smart settlement agreement would have drafted into it the font size and prominence of anything having to do with the name, with a penalty of a great amount worked in for violation.

Sorry for the slight necro, but Lucretia, when you mention font size specifications in the shareholders agreement, is that in reference to when Tate was doing his solo stuff while still in Queensryche? Or was it a condition for if Tate ever left the band?

If Tate ends up getting to use the Queensryche name in some capacity (which again, for the record I'm completely against and would see that as a huge loss to the QR guys), I'm interested to see how the whole "font size" thing will turn out.

It was in reference to the event that anyone left the band or was terminated. It was something like "Queensryche" could be no more than 1/3 the size of the person's name on any promo.

Awesome, thanks. I had forgotten to follow up with this.
