    Arrow You cannot copyright a name.

    What u need is a 'registered trademark'.

    You're kidding, right?
    The fact that no one understands you doesn't mean you're an artist...

    why not try www.bandname.com?

    it's not a copyright thing as such but it does help... it may be that you are already using someone elses I.D.

    As already stated, you cannot copyright a name. You can trademark it.
