Intellectual Property Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer
Hello. My name is Marcelo. I have been a practicing attorney for 17 years now. It seems like you may be talking about Trademarking, not Copyrighting. See this link to the US Copyright office, with answers to FAQ.
There is significant research that needs to be done to ensure that the name and/or design are not already protected and eligible for protection. There are a number of services on line, purporting to offer very inexpensive Trademarking services. I would recommend that you research these options and make an appointment with an attorney who knows Trademark/Copyright law, just to see what he or she might charge you. If I have answered your question, please accept my answer and provide a positive rating so I can receive compensation. If you require additional information, please let me know.
