Same here , saw on The Daily Show - do this , have a band of other ethnicity apply for the Name and get it .
Then they sell it (the Rights) to you guys for $1.00 .
Just an idea guys & good luck ,
We have definitely thought about it! However, we wanted to win on principle. But that also shows the big loophole and flaw in the current system, one of the reasons why context wouldn't work in the law: people can transfer trademark rights
I just saw the Daily Show segment about the trademark thing - crazy! Before we learned it turned out ok, I was going to offer that if it's ok for a non Asian American band to register the name, I'd do that (Scottish American - that should work, right?) and then sell you the trademark for like a beer. Plan for next time?The Slants responded on 06/21/2017 Next question
On your live radio feed through PRP on July 19, 2017, you mentioned that your mission is new music and justice. "MUSIC & JUSTICE" sounds like the title of a special release album featuring a compilation of your songs relevant to social justice! Thoughts on that? ;DThe Slants responded on 07/19/2017
