our band name is theTRANSITION and we just found out that there's a pretty popular band called just Transition that's decently close to us, but they are broken up, is it that big of a deal that our name is really close to theirs

you can get a better name, trust me. MUCH better name. it all depends on you, my band was called vanadium but then we found a UK band with the same name, so to avoid future lawsuits we changed (yes, if they got a deal over here theyd have to use a different name but still)

we like the name, we think it's perfect, but we have the in front of us, so no legal action can be taken right?

I wouldn't advise it, seems like a waste of money to me

better than getting sued and losing even more if they do it.

Were they a big band?

Have you got any money at all? If you don't there would be no point in suing you

They weren't huge, just pretty big around the local community. I'm not sure if they were signed but they did a song with the singer from MxPx! who is a pretty huge band

Then I think theres hardly any reason for them to sue you

If they weren't signed and didn't release any songs what do they have?

just name it something stupid and pointless and say it reflects your soul.
haha, jk. dont do that. you would be emo or hardcore or something.

just get your band members together and talk it over. everyone can come to a conclusion, and if you decide to buy the rights, you can. if not, then don't. just remember, a band name should be something ALL of you like and if you decide to keep it, make sure it is okay with the broken up band.

best of luck to you.
