Bear Custom Drums? I'll think about it. I'll have to make a new myspace though and what should I do with the tom, I'm going to get my Hero badges today for The Easter Egg and The Kid's Toy.
I'll keep doin some brainstorming. I kinda named it after the band House of Heroes.
Bear is a pretty good idea though.

If you put a hero badge on that drum, KNOWING that hereo drums exists, you're REALLY setting youself up for a fall.

Advice... and I mean it... TAKE this advice... Do NOT put a hero badge on those or any other drums. Get RID of your myspace page and make a new one. You're messing with a legitimate business here, and they probably WILL sue you... which being 14 means that your PARENTS will be sued.

Fun is fun... but stop before somebody gets financially damaged.

You're just going to have to take a loss on those badges. To use them is absolutely unethical!

Are you unethical?

What do you mean by unethical? I'll delete the myspace, sir. And just try to sell the tom without a badge.

what he means is that you're putting an already-established business' name on your product. while you might know it's not the same company, and WE might know, someone who has no idea of who you are might go to your myspace page or see that drum with a badge that has an already-established company's name on it and assume you're them. it would be like me making drums and putting TAMA on them. the company could not only sue you for copyright infringement but also for damages resulting from putting out a product that might not be up to their standards.

And you can't simply turn it into Tama CUSTOM drums, either...

You have to think many years into the future, as well. In 25 years when one of your drums pops up, it will be confused with the ACTUAL Hero drums. Remember that when you're making drums, they will outlast you in all liklihood.

And UNETHICAL means... "lacking ethics"

Do the right thing

I got sued over the first kit I built ( I won).

Learn from your mistakes, it makes you a better person.



In the off chance you're still lurking dml, what did you get sued for?

I always lurk. I spend more time deleting spam than anything here.

The customer claimed a bunch of things were wrong with it but he ended up losing.

Hello,
This is concerning the name "Hero Custom drums" This name is tradmarked by Hero Drums LLC. I reccommend that you no longer do business under this name. Not sure if this is just a hobby builder or a drum business, but I have had customers telling me they were confused and went to the hero custom drums face book instead of hero drums. If you would like to discuss this matter personally, please contact me via email. herodrums@gmail.com

Thank you in advance for you cooperation
