    Can a club name and logo be copywritten? How about a website?

    I noticed some chode hounds out of mississippi are forming 4x4syndicate.org and I want to try and keep us separated or even prevent them from using our name for their club. Any tips?

    Club name and logo would be trademarked. Google trademark - the forms are on the net, with instructions. Easy to do and not exepnsive. Don't know about everything regarding a website - the material on the site can be copyrighted if it is original authorship, logos can be trademarked but I don't know if layout can be protected.

    Exacting names, characters, and logos are protected by intellectual property

    For more involved things, like books, you'd need a copyright

    I don't think you could have it stopped, it isn't exactly your name
