In the Bordertown thread OSC said something about titles:
quote:As for titles - they can't be copyrighted. The only reason people try to avoid similar titles is because they don't want people to be confused. The only real issue is trademarking - I can't come out with a film entitled "Superman Meets Mickey Mouse" even if it's just a simile and neither Superman nor Mickey Mouse is depicted in the film. But that's only because of trademarked characters.
Nor can ideas be copyrighted. Only language can be copyrighted. Unless you can show an overwhelmingly close relationship between the story flow of two projects, and a direct line of connection between the creators of the second project and the script etc. of the first, you ain't gonna win in court.
