Now that I have implanted that song in your head for today, an interesting case: two Beatles “tribute” bands are duking out – in federal court, no less – because they each want to call themselves “Get Back.”  One band is suing a local venue for advertising an event featuring the competing band, and said “I Don’t Want to See You Again.”  Responding, “I Don’t Want to Spoil the Party“, the venue owner claims that he is under no duty to verify trademarks before he books acts – because, he says, “I Am The Walrus.”  “In Spite of All the Danger,” the suit is expected to proceed. 

All of which begs the question – where does a cover band get the money to pursue a federal trademark case? 

This is where they start paying.  Not, however, in sweat.
