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.
