Trademark News & Screw-ups ENTOMBED Trademark Ruling Paves Way For New Music, Live Shows From HELLID, CEDERLUND, ANDERSSON

Yep. Another dispute among band members as to who can use the band name after the band composition changes. You would think that these bands would have management that would have some semblance of reason and business knowledge to make sure that the band name and logos are trademarked in such a way as to allow the band to carry on if a band member departs. It's not a question of which of the members is more important (although sometimes it is), it's a matter of HOW do you determine the rights of current and former band members to use the name of the band after there is a change in the band. It's really three things: (1) incorporate a company that will own the band's assets, (2) register the trademarks in the company's name, and (3) have a simple agreement that regulates what happens to band assets, including the trademark, if something goes wrong. It's not like it's a completely unpredictable scenario, is it?
