What's Your Best Advice

This Issue's Dilemma:

Should You Trademark Your Band Name?

People are telling me that I should trademark my band name because another band with the same name could trademark theirs and stop me from using ours. It's going to cost quite a bit in attorney fees to do this but even more if we have to change the band name and repackage CDs and redo our merch. Should we just take our chances or just kick out the extra cash for the trademark fees?

Previous Dilemma:

On the road again ... or not.

Our band is pumped to go out on tour, however, one of our other band members is not. We're starting to really develop a following and to stop now may ruin it for us. How do you handle this lack of enthusiasm?
