: My friends and i have come up with a group name and a girl is trying to copy it. how cant i stop her by copywriting it first.
Dear Lenysa Gardner,
You are dealing with tradename or trademark. The outcome depends on the facts. The first to use usually has the first right.
On what you say it is too hard to judge.
