I just probably spend more than my music's worth. I just recently bothered getting my band name registered.
I think it's important to aim for a professional standard. Even if you know you're not there yet, as long as you're aiming for that goal and you work hard to achieve it.
That's the reason I spend good money on effects that can improve some aspects of my mix by around 5-10%. That's the reason I paid for three of my tracks to be professionally mastered (though, I don't anymore; but I now know the capabilities of various professional ME's, and that they can't make a bad mix sound professional lol).
I just whipped up some crappy logo in Photoshop for my artist name I submit all my best tracks under. Like, it doesn't look terrible, but getting a professionally made logo, or even hosting an art contest for one, is on my to-do list.
However, work has been quiet and I haven't made any money in 3 weeks, so I'm easing up at the moment.
