A recent BBC4 documentary spoke to many of the original participants and a new feature film, titled Northern Soul, from director Elaine Constantine, promises to tell the story of a “youth culture that changed a generation and influenced songwriters, producers, DJs and designers for decades to come.”Released next month, the film features cameos roles from Steve Coogan, Lisa Stansfield and Ricky Tomlinson.

These traders, rivals of the Manchester applicant, saw the logo “solely as a generic badge of allegiance to the northern soul movement”.
Enrico Bonadio, senior lecturer in Law at City University London, said the case was significant: “A word that is widely used in the course of trade cannot be registered and therefore monopolised by anyone.“But, interestingly, this case wasn’t just about what manufacturers who used it on bags, shirts and so on thought.
People used to take along bowling bags, clothing and scooters adorned with patches with the logo to show loyalty to this music movement.
The words and logo, therefore, could not be said to be owned by any one person or company, but by the many lovers of this music genre and subculture as a symbol.”Northern Soul is enjoying a resurgence.
Northern Soul fans have won a battle to prevent the music scene’s famous “clenched fist” logo being trademarked by a shop in Manchester after persuading the copyright authorities that the movement’s symbols belong to all its participants.
