Tottally off-topic, but when I lived in England one of my mates had a brother who was in a band called Oasis (not that one). They got a record deal and were planning to release a single when "musical differences" lead to them imploding.

If they had released a single this would have meant, I believe, that the Gallacher brothers would have had to pick a different name.

Top Names

1. Ozric Tentacles

2. Porcupine Tree

3. Sex Beatles (shameless :rolleyes: )

4. Dean Ford and the Gaylords

5. Bay City Rollers

Registering the name would have been enough to stop the Gallacher's using it I believe. Don't think you have to release anything to have copyright on the name.
