Behringer/Roland Legal Battle Settled

Roland and Behringer have announced that they have settled a lawsuit over the trade dress of the parties’ respective lines of guitar effects pedals. The other terms
of the settlement are confidential.

Behringer last year introduced a line of pedals that some in the industry viewed as “clones” of popular Roland/Boss pedals. Behringer has made modifications to the line.

Dennis Houlihan, President of Roland Corporation U. S. commented: “We are satisfied that Behringer’s current line of guitar pedals is now sufficiently different from the trade dress of the famous BOSS brand of pedals.”

Michael Deeb, CEO of Behringer, commented: “We have great respect for Roland and are pleased that our new line of guitar pedals is enjoying great success in the market.”
