dj name
so there is 2 of us, do you combine how many years of mixing between the 2 of us, vs the other guy. or seperately who has been mixing longer or do you have a mix off...

Ummm.... You could of course complicate things like that. I'm sure if you tried hard enough you could probably incorporate a Miss World style pageant contest in there somewhere too. Perhaps some kind of rock-paper-scissors variant and if you're really feeling particularly combative a good old fashioned best of 3 SFII playoff. Race each other round the block once or twice and then just give up, become a 3 piece and fall in a pile of unadulterated man-dj-love.

Or - if they've been playing under that name longer than you have (together remarkably), are more famous than you, or will just beat your skull in - forfeit the name.

Alternatively fuggedaboudit. I'm sure they'll wise up to you sooner or later.

And when in doubt, ask the int0rnehtz.

if you end up with any kind of success over this other guy but he can prove hes had the name longer than you and hes the type to hold a grudge you might not like the situation he could put you in legally. i think thats right anyway. meh its probably a remote chance at worst and im talking shit at best

when i moved to sydney, i met a guy who used the same dj name as me and played the same damn records. he'd been playing that stuff longer than i so i thought a change is as good as a holiday, changed the dj name, started playing techno and haven't looked back.

register your dj name as a trading name with veda advantage / consumer affairs, then if he is getting paid whilste earning money on your trading........ trouble!! he / she will have to give it up. it will cost around $110 and it will last for 3 years, or $500 for 10 years.

Using your own names fine, but if you share the same name with a famous DJ/producer/label boss then you may rethink using it as a DJ name.

There's nothing wrong with DJ'ing under your own name. In fact, I believe the best DJs out there need no alias.

Apparently there is a DJ Ange in NZ. Never heard of her, not likely to run into her and we've never crossed paths so I doubt it'll be a problem unless one of us hits the big time .... hopefully that'll be me, lol

But I would never use my surname ... too many jokes to be made with that one hahahaha. But, in saying that it could work in my favour ..... I share my surname with the world's first supermodel, a British TV Antique's show dealer and a 70's actress .... you figure it out and you'll see why I don't want to use it, lol

considering angus only uses plan-b as a forum name and not dj name im quite sure you have nothing to worry about except the fact that a few people may associate you with trance in which case run for the fucking hills.

Good in principle but doesn't work in practice.
Registered business names are state-based not federal so you can have the same business name in different states that are totally different businesses.

And you have to police it - they don't. Better get a lawyer son...

Trademarking your name may be better - anyone with experience of this?

What Gamblore - you mean that's now a trademarked phrase meaning an ex-girlfriend?

If you have more than one (and don't we all?) is the plural Bustys Leroo, Busty Leroos or Busty Lesroos...

i hope youre joking, because if you didnt read that as him doing it on an ex-girlfriends behalf then i have serious, serious doubts about your intelligence.

Always loved these guys that were solo but sounded like more than one person. E.g. Kings of Tomorrow. So that's what I was after. Then one day I was watching TV and flicked on an old film called, 'Billion Dollar Boys Club' and I knew that's what I was looking for all these years! After using it for a while I find out Pharrel Williams has a clothing brand 'Billionaire Boys Club'. I was not happy!
