The Journey feud continues. Steve Perry has filed a petition to cancel trademark registrations for 20 Journey songs that were filed by Jonathan Cain and Neal Schon, including “Separate Ways,” “Open Arms,” “Anyway You Want It,” “Who’s Crying Now,” and others. Perry says Cain and Schon violated an agreement that says decisions like these must be made with “prior, written unanimous consent of all partners in each instance.”
At issue is the fact that Cain and Schon filed to register the songs in 2020 through Freedom JN LLC for use on hats, T-shirts, athletic jackets and other paraphernalia without Steve's consent.
The petition also says that Cain and Schon used “false or misleading information” to secure the trademarks to the songs; the two have already sold their song ownership to Hipgnosis.
