Notizia pessima è invece che la Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band è stata scippata del suo stesso nome, e si vede ora costretta ad affrontare una lunga e costosa bega legale per sperare di ritornarne in possesso. La questione è riassunta presso Crowd Justice, dove è possibile solidarizzare con i Nostri e lasciare un aiuto.

In 2017 the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band discovered that in 2015 an entity had registered their name as a 'figurative trademark' ; the name that they have been associated with since the 1960s when they had a Paul McCartney produced hit ‘I’m the Urban Spaceman’ and appeared in the crossover Monty Python TV show ‘Do Not Adjust Your Set’. The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band trademark registration legally entitles the owner to both the name and the associated goodwill and was registered without the consent or the knowledge of the band.
As a result of the grant of the trademark The Bonzos may never be able to record an album or perform a concert under their name ever again. In the two years which have elapsed since this dispute began one member of the band, Sam Spoons, has sadly passed away. The band are challenging the decision to grant the trademark but need your help.
