Isis the Band Being Mistaken for Terrorist Organization

Posted by - 11:59 AM on 08/25/14
ABC News is reporting that Isis, the band, has had to change the name of their Facebook page (to Isis the band) to avoid being confused with the that other ISIS.
"Fans have emailed us that they're reluctant to wear our T-shirts now and we've also gotten some off-color comments," Harris said.

Why doesn't the band just sue the terrorist organization for IP-infringement? Everyone knows the quickest way to shut anyone down is to get the copyright lawyers involved.

Stupid that people would blindlessly post and attack them not knowing they are completely different than the terrorist group.

Really dumb that they had to do that. But I'm sure a surge of people will check them out just because of it.
