Domain names cannot be copyrighted.

But yes you can get a trademark for your name.

Comment #1 or contact johnberryhill here.. both of those can help you trademark for the right fee. I think it costs at least $400...

TMs are earned through commerce. You cannot file for a TM and then get a TM. You are confused with registering your TM as opposed to obtaining one...

Comment #3

What if I start a website and someone get the name a trademark is the name legally there? Thanks for the info..

Comment #4

You may or may not be able to trademark a name. You can almost always trademark a "stylized" logo of a name though, even if the name is deemed to be generic. Just use the name in commerce and put the " "TM" by the name and you have a "trademark". to better protect your rights you can file for a Registered Trademark which would if approved allow the circled "R" symbol.

If you are the first to USE the name in commerce as a trademark or file for a registered TM, then you have something to stand on if somone else later uses or files for a registered trademark. Having a domain name before them will hold some weight, but it's not a sure thing if they are later awarded a registered trademark or claim a non-registered trademark was used before you registered the domain.

By the way, if not sellling tangible goods, technically it's a "Servicemark" instead of a "Trademark"...

Comment #5

Do you have to pay for copyright? I dont remember but I read some where that if you make something it is copyrighted automatcily because you made it is this true?..

Comment #7

I have the domain register already and it's not a generic name it's something I made up is that enough if you made up the name?..

Comment #8

If made up and not composed of standard dictionary words, you should be able to register a trademark or servicemark. As long as no one else made the same name up before you did and TM'd it...
