Q.Can I copyright a name, title, slogan, logo or idea?

A.NO. Copyright does not protect names, titles, slogans, or short phrases. In some cases, these things may be protected as trademarks. Registering a trademark is not a do it yourself project. We strongly suggest your hire an attorney to assist you in obtaining a trademark.

Back to copyrights. Copyright protection may be available for logo art work that contains sufficient authorship. In some circumstances, an artistic logo may also be protected as a trademark. Copyright does not protect ideas, concepts, systems, or methods of doing something. You may express your ideas in writing or drawings and claim copyright in your description, but be aware that copyright will not protect the idea itself as revealed in your written or artistic work.
