: Dear Mr. Auslander:
: A local band has a name they have been using for about five years. The name is a single common word. They have produced a CD which will be published and start touring (possibly nationally).
: One of the members is concerned that there is a magazine copywrighted with the same name. Should the band select another name? Should (or could) we get a Service Mark on the name currently being used?
: Thank you for your assistance,
Dear Ms. Foster,
The facts must be gone over in detail. On the basis of what you say there is a good chance that the mark may be able to be registered.
There is a new antidilution statute that may impact on the situation.
The band needs competant Intellectual Property legal advice, that they can trust.
