Hi,

 

Iam at the point of Gamedevelopement where I must decide how to name it. Working Title just doesnt do it anymore.

Sounds easy...but everything that fits the Game is already taken.

 

My favorite Name is already taken from another very small Indiegame. (this one is Freeware and Opensource, if it matters)

 

I have lots of alternatives, but every single one has been used, from CCC- to AAA Game Titles. ^^

The Game will not be Freeware if this matters..

 

So...here are my Questions.

 

1. How do I know if a Title is Copyrighted, or is every Gametitle automagical "reserved" ? I have no clue about this stuff...

 

2. Can I reuse the Name of an very old Game and add something to it, to show its inspired from this Game ? Example. Could I make a "Dungeonmaster Tactics", inspired from the 90er Title Dungeonmaster ?

 

3. There are some good sources I could read about this topic ?

 

 

Thx for answers ;)
