to use the names of TV shows or songs in my books? I think this has been discussed before, but I can’t seem to find a thread.

How has everyone been, I haven’t posted in a while been busy, busy. Hope everyone is well and best of luck on all of your writing projects.

Titles are covered by copyright.

Hello Writerchyck,

It’s true titles are protected, but for you to use the names or titles, depends on the context of your use. To generally use them for conversation between characters without applying your own artistic license would be okay. Anything made public can be mentioned, but not changed or given credit to someone other than the copyright holder.

I hope this makes sense to you.

Best wishes,
