I have a client that has asked me to put the copyright symbol after the name of a service that they offer on their site. I have no problem doing this but I am sceptical that they can copyright the 3 word service name like they claim to have. The service name is along the same lines as "Widgets 2 Wodgets". I am just curious to know if something like that can be copyrighted? I would have thought the way to protect something like that is to Trademark it?

Thanks for the info, Sorry i should have said i'm in the UK, but i'm guessing the same, or atleast similar, rules go over here.
Just had another hunt on the UK's IP Office website and found that names, titles, slogans and phrases can't be copyrighted so i'm guessing my Clients service name would probibily come under one of these catagories, now all i need to do is decide whether to tell them or not :-/
