Can I write an article named "Disney"?

Post by Halie0201 » Sat Mar 04, 2017 6:09 pm

I have a question about copyright and trademark right. For some special words or movie title, are they copyrighted, like "Disney" or "Star War"? If I write an article named "Disney" or "Star War" (just for non-commercial usage, like a blog or passage post on websites), which has no relationship and of course, no competition with the original movie or product, will this infringe others' copyright or trademark right?
