I personally think that Korean Rain should be able to keep his name performing in the United States because he just wouldn't be 'Rain' the performer without his stage name. Anyway what are your thoughts? If anybody is interested here are the information to write letters in support of Korean 'Rain' keeping his stage name while performing in America.
The Judge is Judge Larry R. Hicks at
Street Address:
301 Bruce R. Thompson
United States Courthouse and Federal Bldg
400 South Virginia Street
Reno, NV 89501-2193
Phone: 775-686-5800

If you write a letter to the judge, please be polite, respectful, and try to explain that the name “Rain” is the English equivalent to the Korean word “Bi” and it has nothing to do with an old group of performers who play someone else’s (Beatles) music. Also, make mention that the “Korean Rain” is known internationally in India, China, Japan, Thailand, Australia, Vietnam, and other countries and he has his own music. You might also want to show that the “Korean Rain” looks nothing like members of the tribute band (since they are older, fatter, wear wigs, and don’t even resemble the “Korean Rain.”)

Sometimes letters and the voices of real people about legal matters can result in a fair court decision. Don’t give up—get active and help “The Korean Rain” save his name!

the instruction was not written by me...I thought those information was useful, and I do not have any idea if the American band 'Rain' is fatter, wear wigs or whatever

i think this whole legal battle is real stupid. Rain should be allowed to keep his name.

"rain the beatles experience..." that's an odd name for a beatles tribute band.

and i hate to break it to them, but no one is going to confuse K-Rain with them.

seriously, people need to get a life - how did this altercation even happen? i can't imagine anywhere their paths would cross. unless they happened to hear about K-Rain and decided to be whiny little bitches out of it, and maybe make some easy cash on a settlement over name rights.

what does it matter if they both have the same name?
i highly doubt people would confuse them

rain is known in a lot of places (not exactly sure lol) that's why he should keep his name. I mean the sexiness of rain suites the sexiness in RAIN. exactly why that sexy guy should keep his name

(lol)

i think that Rain/Bi is more popular than the American "Rain" Band. so there, Rain/Bi shouldn't change his name. crap those people who against him.

Rain/Bi is Rain and no one could change that just because he has the same name with other bands or whatever!
