Tam, 35, a onetime religion and philosophy major turned bass-playing MBA, says record labels and agents require bands to register the trademarks; it’s not a privilege so much as a necessity. Tam has always approached the band as a business, and wants to reach the place where band members can quit their jobs and make music full-time. (Tam himself is the marketing director for an Oregon environmental nonprofit, an adjunct at two colleges and a traveling writer and speaker who sits on six boards of directors.).
