Best Answer

That depends on what your band has done.

If you've done a cover of a song, you can't be sued aslong as you credit it to the original artists.

If you've called your band the same name as someone else's band then you could be sued if they find out.

If you've hit someone over the head with a can of dry ice, then you can also be sued, or even prosecuted.

No. If they are famous, everyone who hears about you will say, 'There's already a band called ___' and think you're stupid for not knowing; also, if the band themselves hear about it, you could easily get sued. Not advisable to steal the names of smaller bands, either. Nirvana did it and got sued.
