In short it says I'm allowed to continue activities on the Goose, but I have to remove every copyrighted symbol from the site: lyrics, photos, the moustache symbol and the names Zappa, Frank Zappa, FZ and Dweezil.
Here's one sad bunny... :(

What The French, surely this must be the trusts idea of a bad April fools joke, though the humour is lost on me.

How can they suggest you operate a fan site without being able to use the name etc of the person to which the site is devoted?????

Maybe the Z's want a slice of the millions of dollars the Goose isn't generating.

Whats your plan, how can we help?

Sounds like the ZFT is only in it for the money.

Well it IS a business.

But.... doesn't the left hate private business and want to spread that wealth around ? I mean , how dare the ZFT provide something that might cost the average consumer some money. They should just give their product away , or at least give it to the government so it can be re-distributed.

I'm confused :wink:

The ZFT is obviously wildly jealous of the loot you have accrued through the flagrant abuse of the name Z*pp*. "Zoppo" is a good substitute though, as you don't really notice it's not Z*pp* at first glance. It does sound a bit like a long-lost Marx Brother though. :wink:

I just don't get it. What does the ZFT stand to lose by the existence of fan sites? Are they making huge bucks off this ad-free forum?

The ZFT don't like fans. That's why they're sweating so much.

Can you picture Gail The Hutt sitting in her Vault, shouting "He's mine! Mine! All mine, and nobody else's! Mooooo Ha Ha Ha Haaaa...."?

They must have put a tale on me and tailed me to The Goose.Sorry Bonny. Thats the Pits. :evil:
Can we say his name? How about initials? They didn't copyright Z,F like in a record store.So if we talk about "him" on The Goose we could use Z,F as a symbol for "him". :wink:
Do I have to shave now too? :roll:

The Goose is now un-Zoppo-ed and ready for love!
