There's gotta be something involved in registering your band name or
something. Like you have to do with business logos and names. But these
Super Friends may be too small for our ec Super Friendz to notice. I doubt
they're honing in on their market (possibly confusing tho). It's like
calling your band Nervana (sorry guys, just for example's sake). They may
not have a suit against them but it's definately a musical faux pas.
Another question is... who had the name first?
