Why would you want to change your name? Zenith productions right? or is it just Zenith.

Zenith sounds cool

okay, just a word of my knowledge. Zenith is already a brand, copyright infringement.

I've had the impression all this time that you guys had some sort of sponsorship from Zenith.

If you want to keep the name send them a nice e-mail telling them you realized this only recently and that you could keep the name. I know of several times where things like this turned into actual sponsorship/support (only when contact was initiated by the accidental wrong doers).

...or change the spelling.

Maybe, but they can be called TEAM zenith?

If this is a problem, Team insomnia might have to change because theres a shoe brand called insomnia.

Unlike Team H You can't copyright a single letter.

i really doubt copyright is going to matter. They arent doing anything commercial.

Its just like how you can use ANY song in your uni videos, if youre not selling it then nobody will come after you for $

zenith is just a word. Anyone can use it as long as no-one has trademarked it in the area you are using it.

So as long as you're not selling TVs (or there's a sports team called zenith that has trademarked the name too) you don't need to worry too much.

That's why there can be a tv company, a watch company, an insurance company etc. all called Zenith without everyone suing everyone else.

You sure about that? So I could start a restuarant and call it Kris Holm? Or start making unicycles and call them Mcdonalds?

McDonalds property

Mcdonalds boats
http://www.tiferry.com.au/HOME.10.0.html

You couldn't start a chain of restaurants and call them mcdonalds. Or use any of the logos associated with their trademark to sell your stuff, or pretend that you were related in any way to the other company.
