    So we have people right now crying and insulting BH and TXT for using a fandom name that hasn't copyright but when SM named their girl group Red Velvet like the indie band that debuted before them, all was 'it doesn't have copyright, it's band's fault'.

    But ofc who would side with the inde band?
    It's just another example of how kpop stans will just point the ones they want and not everybody that's wrong.

    LOL did they really chose one that's already in use?? I knew they all wanted Starlight too haha...

    Whether it's copyrighted or not, still kind of a bad move on BH's part imo. Unless they are desperate for any press, either good or bad..

    True, they can do what they want, I just said I think it's a bad idea.. that's all.

    Fair enough

    Getting a trademark on a group name makes sense to me. Didn't know fandom names need to be trademarked now. How many fandom names are actually under a trademark? Next thing you know fandom colors are going to be trademarked

    eh the situation has been majorly overblown on both sides idk how bad Red Velvet got it but I think people are snapping on TXT a little too hard

    I feel like this might be a bit of a different situation though? Like Tiffany never legally declared 'young one' as her fandom name but she choose it before txt debuted. Either way fans on both sides are blowing this way out of proportion.

    Also from what I remember RV got ALOT of hate for the name.
