What does copyright protect?
Copyright, a form of intellectual property law, protects original works of authorship including literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as art, poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture. Copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed.
Infringements on Slogans and Quotes:
Copyright protection does not extend to titles, names, slogans or short phrases, the Copyright Office has made that very clear. You cannot copyright your name, the title of your post or any short phrase that you use to identify a work. Titles, short phrases, and slogans, therefore, can be protected as trademarks, provided they are used to identify goods or services in commerce. Slogans that identify a Trademark will be reviewed and immediately removed. Proof of your registered trademark including serial number must be provided to process your removal request.
