Names cannot be copyrighted. You cannot violate a copyright in a name since such a thing does not exist. Please see the US copyright office's FAQ, specifically the questions "Can I copyright the name of my band?" and "How do I copyright a name, title, slogan or logo?". http://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-protect.html

Sorry to nitpick, but misinformation about intellectual property law really, really irritates me.

Also, while you're there, read about how to copyright your Elvis sighting.
