Default Bucks Fizz,Sugarbabes and UB40

Never thought I'd mention the UBs in the same breath as Bucks Fizz and Sugarbabes,sorry boys.

Having said that,there are certainly similarities between what happened with those bands and UB40.In the Bucks Fizz case three of the four original members wanted to reform using the band name but the judge ruled that they had surrendered all rights to the name by leaving the band.In the case of the Sugarbabes the ENTIRE original line has recently reunited but has to perform under a different name because each original member left at different times,again,surrendering their right to use the band name.

Even allowing for the vagaries of the British legal system precedent seems to dictate UB40 will prevail.

Being that the law can be an ass, we can only hope that it's the REAL UB40!

The judge could take a dim view off it.

How many different variations sorry promotional names have been used over the last 6 years with UB40 in it from the other side.

They could call themselves UB Faulty. Close enough, right?
