The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board ("TTAB") ruled that Patriot Guard Riders, Inc. ("PGR") is the owner of the PGR marks.  In order to enforce the TTAB's ruling, PGR sued Jeff Brown for trademark infringement in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma.  PGR and Jeff Brown have now come to an amicable settlement, and Jeff Brown has waived his right to appeal the TTAB decision, rather than continue to fight over this issue.

In view of this settlement, PGR-branded merchandise will now only be available for purchase through the PGR's store.

Regardless of whether you previously supported PGR or Jeff Brown in the trademark dispute, we encourage all members to unite and put our combined efforts toward supporting our Active Duty Military, First Responders, Veterans and their families.  We further request that all personal attacks against Jeff Brown (a/k/a Twister), Bonnie Brown (a/k/a "Force-5" or "F-5"), Twister's Store, the PGR, and/or any of the PGR's members be discontinued immediately
