If You Don’t Register

If You Don’t Register

What if you don’t register the trademark for your band’s name?

If you don’t register and later find out that another band has the same or similar name:
 

  • You can be liable and be sued for infringement.
  • You’ll need to redo CD’s, merchandise & concert promotion.
  • You’ll confuse and lose fans if you have to change your name.
  • You can lose the right to use the name outside your original geographic area.
  • If you infringe someone else’s trademark, you can be sued, ordered to stop using the name,
    give up profits earned, pay money damages and pay attorney’s fees.
