Ask a Lawyer - Intellectual Property Law questions answered by leading lawyers
Can we be forced to change our band name just because another band has a similar name?
I have been in this band for 2 years and have had no issue with this, an hour ago a band whose name is one letter off of ours messaged us and said we "need" to change our name. After this he claimed they would get their lawyer. Are they able to make us change our name because of this? Or should I just not worry about it?
Can I sell images from the internet in printed format?
I want to create a company that produces physical books made from images found on the internet. Would it be a grey area to sell these books considering the images may or may not be "free". This being said, taking into considering that "sharing" and "pinning" images nets indirect profit, but is accepted on the internet.
