Will the Bandname.com $12 fee guarantee me from having a copyrighted band name or just a name registration?

Thanks for the links

In the register part they say "A one-off, lifetime registration fee of $12 USD (£6.90 10.23 EURO) ensures your claim to the name will remain visible in the event of any name conflict claims and alert other artists of your active status. In addition you will have full access to all our unique member services".
So it seems that they register the band name. They don't say anything about the copyright.

There's no copyright on a band name.

In Switzerland, as far as I know, you've got these options:
A) Trademark it
cool.gif Create a Company for your Band
Both of them are relatively expensive.

To prove that you've created a work (song), or used a name first, it's enough to put it in a letter and send it to your self, and keep it closed. The post stamp will be accepted as proof in court (at least in switzerland). But I think that in other countries it works too.

Cheers,
Jonas
