Last month we told you about a lawsuit, launched by The Eagles, against a Canadian owned hotel in Mexico, over the hotel’s name and the Eagles signature tune.
The owners have now responded. John and Debbie Stewart say the Eagle’s claim is baseless, that the band waived its trademark rights by waiting 40-years to assert those rights, and they want the suit dismissed.
In a filing in Los Angeles Federal Court, the owners say any alleged use of the Eagles trademarks is not likely to cause confusion, deception or endorsement from the band.
“Hotel California,” won the 1977 Grammy for record of the year.
