This might be hypothetical, but it has elements of truth to it. Let's say there was a band in existence in the late 60s in a certain country that was basically a glorified garage band. They played a few gigs in coffee shops, high schools and local town festivals, then broke up around 1971. Almost 50 years later, someone moves to another town in another country, and wants to use the band name for his own. Should he do it, or is it frowned on? I almost hate to say this, since I can't stand to say this, but I'm asking for a friend.
