(Rock News Desk) An unsigned UK band are locked in what they call a "big business bully-boy" battle with a games corporation who are trying to take their name from them.

Ubisoft recently announced plans for a music videogame to be called Rocksmith. But a band from Southend, England, has been called Rocksmith for four years and mainman Kris Ford registered the title four years before that.

He only discovered Ubisoft's plans when they filed to register "Rocksmith" as a trademark in March this year. His attempts to defend his property have cost him hundreds of pounds already and could cost him thousands more. more on this story
