Quadruple Falls? UK Artist "Twin Falls" Has...

Posted by: Jason Tate (03/26/13)
A UK band by the name of Twin Falls doesn't like that the new Twin Falls is using the name. I guess this is now awkward.
As it now stands, after seeking the small amount of legal advice that we could buy ourselves, the crux of this situation is that: regardless of how long we have been using the name, any attempt to stop the other party using it will have to involve a lengthy journey through the courts. In other words, at the end of the day, the person who has the most money and therefore the resource to fight their case to the bitter end, will win. We could pile all of our money into the situation, of course but eventually (probably quite quickly) our money will run out and our battle will be lost. It may be a weak source of reference but according to a website that lists how much US recording artists are worth, Chris Carrabba has earned around $12million. My last PRS cheque was for 245.

I...kinda side with the Brit. Why start a new band when the Dashboard name is so well established?

Because this is completely different members (minus Chris) and a completely different style of music

I was wondering about this, felt weird when there is a pretty solid last.fm page for a band with that name already. Honestly, a bit weird to me that new Twin Falls didn't check around first, and if they did then I am surprised at a lack of care
