With Journey's Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain still involved in a lawsuit, former lead singer Steve Perry has dropped his lawsuit against them.
Last September, Perry filed a petition seeking to cancel trademark registrations for 20 songs he had a hand in writing.
They registered songs including "Separate Ways," "Open Arms," "Anyway You Want It" and several others for hats, T-shirts, athletic jackets and other paraphernalia. Perry had claimed they violated an earlier agreement that said these kind of decisions must be made with "prior, written unanimous consent of all partners in each instance."
Perry also claimed they used "false or misleading information" in securing the trademarks.”
Last Saturday, Schon posted a photo of the legal document that stated the withdrawal of the petition and he wrote, "So much for JC [Jonathan Cain] trying to throw me under the bus as he claimed I was blatantly trying to rip off SP [Steve Perry] while collecting the checks for the very diligent work my wife and I did to protect our Merch. Time for coffee."
Perry was also asked on Twitter by a fan if he was dropping his lawsuit. He replied, "Yes he did. Now we can talk as we were.”
