SURVIVOR [THE GROUP] HAS ISSUES WITH TV PROGRAM
Guess the “Eye of the Tiger” finally opened up and is ready to litigate. A founder of the Grammy-winning band Survivor will take legal action to prevent the band's name from being used on a soon-to-be-released soundtrack from the widely popular “Survivor” TV series. Lead guitarist Franklin Sullivan III, who trademarked the name Survivor in 1977, will ask a federal court in Chicago next month for a preliminary injunction against CBS and TVT Records, lawyer Annette McGarry said. “After 23 years of selling and performing music in the marketplace, Sullivan has rights to the famous trademark, ‘Survivor.' We are confident that Sullivan will be the ultimate winner,'' she added. “This is the first time the public has said ‘Survivor' since Rocky III.”
