Default Re: Band name issues

Almost certainly capitalizing means nothing. What can cause issues is if there is sufficient reason that the original band might come to think that you are stealing potential consumers away from them by causing brand confusion.

This used to happen all the time back in the day. You know, before the internet and Google and things.

If your genre of music is the same genre the original Whale plays, it will make the situation worse. Time for you, or the band as a whole, to spend some time on the internet trying to come up with something truly unique. May I suggest not leaving it up to your guitarist this time?
