Trademark Registration - Band Names (1)

Facts: We were approached by an entrepreneur who had been a member of a rock band that some sixteen years ago had been reasonably successful and had sold a few thousand records under their label. They had never protected the label or the band name. He is now a wealthy and successful businessman and his idea was to resurrect the band name and use it as a global brand for entertainment venues and spin off products like cosmetics and fashion. Unfortunately, in the intervening period someone had obtained a trademark registration for exactly the same name for the organisation of rave parties up and down the country. We came up with a trademark registration strategy that has secured the vital trademark registration protection that our client needs to roll out the brand internationally
Moral:  Its never to early (or too late) to register a trade mark. Any name in business can be protected in this way including band names, group names, rock venues, music events, restaurants, hotels and venues, products, book titles, magazine titles, cartoon characters, drinks labels, awards and prizes, social media brand names and any other name that is used in business.
