Name your Game...what is copyrighted and what not ?

11 April 2013 - 07:05 AM



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 ;)

EDIT: Oh Sorry, forgot this is an english forum ;) I have a static log filehandle (textwriter) in my project, and this works well, except that sometimes the runtime skipps a call to the logger with the comment: SingleStep: Nonusercode "System.IO.TextWriter.WriteLine" is skipped. (Free translation from german) There is no code optimization on, and I have no idea why this happens. Thx ;) edit2: happens in release and in debug mode [Edited by - Elfblood on May 20, 2009 3:43:23 PM]
