    Thumbs up ED ROMAN: Copy Petrucci JP6 - Infringement

    As you may know, Ed Roman has been advertising for sale on his website an unauthorized copy Petrucci guitar and left hand copy Petrucci bodies http://www.edromanguitars.com/guitar...trucci_ern.htm . Ed Roman aslo advertised repainted OLP guitars as EBMM axis guitars.

    Our opinion is that this was an infringment on the legal rights of Ernie Ball, Inc. and John Petrucci. We contacted Mr. Roman and a settlment has been reached:

    1. Ed Roman must remove from his website all references to any and all EBMM products and designs. Ed Roman also cannot say anything at all about Ernie Ball or Music Man, or EBMM guitars or basses on his website, or anywhere on the Internet , or by other public communication. [Ed Roman has already removed the link to the EBMM main page on his website and has taken out the negative references to EBMM on the OLP custom page.]

    2. Ed Roman cannot from make or sell any copy EBMM guitars, including copies of the John Petrucci Signature Model;

    3. Ed Roman cannot sell new EBMM guitars, and can only sell used trade-ins;

    4. Ed Roman must post an apology to EBMM and John Petrucci for making and advertising the copy Petrucci guitars and bodies.

    Another famous victory for the EBMM team. Thanks to Blackspy and others for pointing out these issues. We are on top of it and have been working on this problem, among other things.
