On The Subject Of Harmonium

canada trademark and copyright

After having checked every major publishing company in the United States and Canada, the band “Harmonium” appeared not to have existed.

Checking trademark and copyright databases yielded the same results – nothing.

So it would be legal for me to use the name and there wouldn’t be much they could do about it.

But I won’t.

I don’t give a rat’s ass about what’s legal, I’m only interested in what’s right and taking the name of a band that came up with it 40 years before I ever thought of it doesn’t make it right.

I can vividly imagine how I’d feel if someone did that to me.  It’s their name and fair play to them.

I’ll find something else.
