Sun, 16 May 1999 00:59:10 -0400 (EDT) I'm pretty sure you cannot copyright a title in the US. However,
Hollywood has (or at least had, as '50s drive-in movie producers started
with the title, then made a move to fit, or not fit, it) a film registry
to keep film titles from being repeated. It must still be in effect,
because I remember Dave Simon telling me they had to get David Mamet's
(actually his lawyer's) permisson to use the title Homicie for the TV
program. I wonder if someone could challenge it as violating anti-trust
