: : How do I search if my band name can be used legally. Also if the name is in use in an unrelated field will this cause me problems?
Firstly there is no copyright in a name. To be sure that your band name can be used legally, I wouls recommend that you undertake a search of the trade mark register in the country where you are based. However, it is always advisable to undertake a world-wide search to clear a name. There are also other searches like domain name searches and carry out a search of the Internet!
If you need further advice contact a trade mark lawyer.
