This is probably the strongest reaction the band has ever given since Ali left. It's entirely understandable. The last line is very interesting of course:

“As for Ali, Mickey and Astro, the matter is now in the hands of our lawyers”.

If this case goes the same way as the Bucks Fizz case did (it's very similar), then the chances are that Astro, Ali and Mickey will be deemed to have given up their right to the name when they ceased to be members of the band anymore.

Long overdue, in my opinion. Enough is enough now.... time to kick some ass on this one.

Yes I think some of the companies involved are going to need to be careful because it is not like you can go back and just remove everything and say it did n't happen etc, especially with screen capture etc now on computers.
