I think they are both cool names. Hmmm if I had to choose between those two I think I would go with Cutting Edge.

I think the blade runners is attention grabbing. I kind of like it more.

I like it too but I think I would be concerned, would there be any future problems with the owners of the movie? Could they have a legal position that would force a name change?

I think they would have to prove that the LCO was benefiting from the movies title. In this case, the LCO is actually running blades on his mower. And also the fact that it is an entirely different type of business. No connection to the movie. But if he tried using the name...Pepsi... for example, then there might be an issue.
I have a friend who owns a roofing company called "Kenwood Roofing". He can continue to operate under this name because a) he is not in the electronics industry. b) His name is Ken. c) "wood" he is in the construction industry.
Of course I'm not an attorney, but this is how I understand it.

I dunno just take a look at the WWF (World Wrestling Federation). they had to change their name to WWE (World Wrestiling Entertainment) because of the WWF (World Wildlife Foundation) and they had no affiliation with each other. Something to think about.

I would assume that it was easier for them to change their initials then to fight a long lengthy expensive battle in court over it. I don't think a lawn care company would have this problem. But then again, I am not an attorney!
