The Worldwide Band Name Registry

Protect your band name

Why register?

Establishing prior usage is a key component in protecting your name and avoiding unwelcome legal challenges. The Worldwide Registry notifies artists and labels where potential territorial name conflicts exist and registers your historical claim to 'name' usage.

The Band & Artist directory

The Worldwide Band and Artist directory is published and submitted to the Washington Library of Congress along with the British Reference Library as a guide to global name activity.

Important new feature

Avoid lengthy and expensive legal disputes by registering each band member's interest in your band's name. Bandname gives you the power to quickly and easily ensure each artist of your choosing has a registered interest, helping you avoid surprise claims later.
