My son and friends have a garage band. they were notified today by another band, by email, that they have the same name and that the name of their band has been licensed and copyrighted with the US copyright office since 1996. My son's band plays for local friends parties, school events, etc. and do not sell any tapes, etc. My son's band does have a domain name and a website. We are in Texas. Can you please advise how we can find out if the other band has the legal rights to the name? Also, can my son's band continue to use the name if they are not selling their services or products with the name?
