I think when you register it at your local chamber of commerce then its yours. But I'm not completely sure about that.


That's not true (at least not in most countries).
What you want is a trademark.

Ok so how do i get one?


Well, if you read that link it says
Quote:
Proprietary rights in relation to a trademark may be established through actual use in the marketplace, or through registration of the mark with the trademarks office (or "trademarks registry") of a particular jurisdiction - e.g. US Patent and Trademark Office.


The link "US Patent and Trademark Office" would be the place to go (as your apparently from the USA).
