I don't know if this has been posted here before, but I found an interesting article:

Quote
Yoshiki Hayashi, the assignee and president of the
original applicant, Japan Music Agency Co., Ltd., is currently
the owner of an application to register the mark "EXTASY RECORDS
INTERNATIONAL" for "a series of sound recordings, namely,
phonograph records, prerecorded compact discs, and videos
featuring music and entertainment.", on the ground that
applicant's mark, when applied to the goods listed in the application, so resembles the mark "EAR X-TACY," which is
registered in the format shown below
for "prerecorded cassette tapes, video tapes, compact discs,
laser discs and records featuring music and entertainment and
blank cassette tapes and blank video tapes and compact disc and
cassette tape storage cases,"2 as to be likely to cause
confusion, mistake or deception.

Personally, I think there's enough of a difference between the two names that there shouldn't be this much of an issue over it. o.o
