    Hello, Airsoft Society. I just started a team with 6 guys, the problem is that we don't have a name yet as we just formed on Friday. We all agreed that name should be like a PMC (Private Military Contractor/Company)

    P.S. I do understand there are a ton of threads about this topic, but they dont have what I'm really looking for.

    My first thought since you already know what you want would be to head straight to Google... Search "list of PMC companies". Here are some of the results I discovered...
    http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/Private_Military_Corporations/list_of_PMCs
    http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/para/pmc-list.htm
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_private_military_contractors

    ...That's assuming I understand your desire, as in you want to use the name of a pre-existing company to use as your own airsoft team name, similar to how other teams would use the name of a currently or previously existing unit, squad, or group.

    Can I make a patch and put a copyright on it still?

    If you're using their logo, symbol, or insignia it could be a violation to copyright laws. If you made your own logo, symbol, or insignia and applied it to a patch, you'd be well within your rights as long as it didn't copy or mimic another copyright protected piece of art.
