I don't give a flying fuck about their passive-aggressive press releases.

If they have some kind of announcement related to Frank's music, I'm all ears...

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

Technically not since they still need to use lawyers.

Quote:
The younger siblings alleged that in October 2016, 49-year-old Dweezil posted on his website that he was no longer allowed to use the federal trademark “Zappa Plays Zappa” because of an order “fired off by the ZFT,” referring to the Zappa Family Trust.

No such order was in effect and the trademark was obtained by the family trust in 2007 to allow any of Frank Zappa’s children to play his music for the benefit of them all, the petition stated.

Under the settlement, Dweezil agrees to remove all negative comments about the ZFT on his website and merchandise. In return, he will receive all his CDs, vinyl records and posters currently under ZFT possession as well as any master tapes the trust may be holding on his behalf.


Why was he lying? Was he trying to get more people to come to the show?

And then there's this gem:
Quote:
Before either side can file a lawsuit, they must try to avert litigation by talking to each other and, if that is unsuccessful, attend mediation.


So they need the lawyers to tell them to avert litigation by talking to each other?

How much did the ZFT gain over my Zappa fanhood, about €500, putting all the albums, the DVDs and the ZPZ concerts together? Relatively how much of that is going to lawyers?
Next time they tell you some kind of begging story when they charge a lot of money for road tapes that you are only going to listen to once or twice, and they say "it's because people download" or "there aren't many Zappa fans to begin with", remember this.
