so most everybody into modern guitar knows who john 5 is, but i was lookin at the Flobots website and saw that a member's name is jonny 5...is that some sort of "name" infringement? Normally you wouldn't think so, because a name is a name and never truly your own, but when it becomes part of a product you would think it would rasie some eyebrows. Does anybody think this is some sort of copyright infringement in some weird way, or know anything about the law when it comes to that?
Only if John 5 has a copyright taken out on his name.
Maybe if they didn't have numbers for names, they wouldn't be in this mess
go watch short circuit.
Perhaps you shouldn't stress over small matters like this.
