    Is this a decent place to use for registering your bandname?

    I'm a Canadian artist if that helps.

    I think I have checked that site before, if not it was one similar....

    I've noticed even in the US there were bands registered with the same name on that site. Just sign in and look for search for common band names.... not sure if this registration is only valid locally for each state or not,,,

  4. I have had friends and aqantinces use that particular website, and while it's always good for a band to get themselves into as many databases as they can, that's all they are, large databases', so do some additional research for the name you chose for the band. I know somebody who used that website for a particular name, didn't find any matches, got excited cause he figured since it wasn't their he was going to use it, had all different kinds of designs being made, and then a week later after some suggestions used a search engine and found a band website with that EXACT SAME name. Just some advice from experience!
