    Default Who Owns The Wu Logo?

    I was kinda surprised to see Wu logos on the cover of the new Holocaust album as I didn't really think he would still have much to do with the Wu. Which got me to thinking exactly who needs to authorise the use of the Wu logo for an artist to legally use it? What are the conditions for the use of it?

    I remember rumours back in the day that Rza sued Killah Priest for using the logo on the cover of Heavy Mental with no authorisation, but that could just have easily been bullshit.

    It's not really something I expect anybody here to know about (Cilvaringz maybe?), I just thought I'd put it out there for discussion.

    Mathematics designed the logo, check the Wu Manual, it has the original version of the logo there too, the one with the arm comin from the W holdin a dreadlocked guys head, dont know about who "owns" it tho, and definately cant see RZA suing Priest over using it

    I know Mathematics designed it, but that has nothing to do with what I asked. I don't mean to sound rude, just clarifying that that is not what I'm asking here.

    The Wu Manual does not shed any light on what I'm asking.

    If what you say is true...
    The shaolin and the wu-tang could be dangerous!
    En garde, I'll let you try my wu-tang style...

    rza owns the logo
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    That was Divine, RZA's brother, who sued Killah Priest.

    RZA owns the logo, and I remember an interview where he said he would now take more care about how his logo and brand would be used, he said he made a mistake by allowing it to be on all these killa beez albums, and that now the logo would be only on wu-tang / wu-tang members albums.

    Well isnt RZA and Holocaust cool anyways. They all live in Cali I believe, and he fucks with The Black Knights and NorthStar...groups that I know RZA is somewhat associated with.
