If the Space brand is owned by Matutes and the Space building was owned by Matutes too, which component of Space did Rosello own?
Or was he just a figurehead without legal rights to anything?
ok so... as far as I know (disclaimer: that story started way before I even heard about ibiza for the first time so I'm not sure the below is absolutely 100% correct), pepe roselló had a lease on it and the rights to exploit the brand until the lease ended and Grupo de Empresas Matutes wanted it back (to turn it into hï). by the time space closed, most people knew pepe never had been the owner of the building, but the brand thing only came to light later. pepe obvs tried everything to get the rights, but AFAIK he simply didn't (they went to court and everything).
now, if you compare the logo on the HRH screen
(which is the original one we all remember...)
with the one pepe has been using lately
you will clearly see that neither the wording nor the graphs are the same.
so...unless pepe roselló and matutes have buried the hatchet, something which is pretty unlikely after pepe's swath of attacks in the media lately, a lot of people here on the island think that the announcement on the HRH screen is actually done by matutes himself and a direct vengeance.
so yeah, this story could probably entertain us for a while...
