I wonder if a website name be copyrighted?
if yes,please mention the procedure?
Thanks in Advance :)
Website name can be trademarked.
You will have to first identify if the same name is used by someone else. You can get that by requesting a trademark search (Fee:- INR 500).
If its already in use (anywhere) you'll have to figure out a different name & if its not in use ... bingo !!! Apply for the trademark.

Hey hi puneet..
Thanks a lot for the reply,have been waiting for some one to reply :)
The one which i am using now is www.jobsplane.in and i also have the .net & .co.in extensions for this..
None else is using this,but the .com is parked by some domain registration company..so can i still go ahead with copyright?
Having a domain name & trademark are different. I just checked the website & jobsplane logo.
Lets say you buy the domain name snapdeal.fr, sanpdeal.in, snapdeal.whatever
You can use the domain names for your website But, you can not trademark or use - snapdeal if its already trademarked.
The best way is to get a trademark search done for jobsplane.
ok...i would look if jobsplane already has any trademark!!
Thanks a lot puneet for the info :)
