* Us here at KUR (non-profit fan site)
* Ugly Radio Rebellion (non-profit tribute band)
* Project/Object (non-profit tribute band)
* Bogus Pomp (non-profit tribute band)
* Sheik Yerbouti (non-profit tribute band)
* Zappanale Festival (non-profit Zpp festival)

Update: had to add tribute band Ugly Radio Rebellion to the list as they too are now being sued by the ZFT for alleged copyright infringement.
