Scholz sues ex-Boston guitarist Goudreau

Tom Scholz, the leader and principal songwriter of the band Boston, is suing his former bandmate Barry Goudreau, accusing the guitarist of trademark infringement.

In the lawsuit filed this week in US District Court in Boston, Scholz claims Goudreau’s “persistent, unauthorized, and willful misuse” of Boston-related trademarks exaggerates his role in the band and “deprives Scholz of his ability to control fully the nature and quality of all (Boston) products and services . . . and harms the valuable reputation and goodwill” of the band.
