: I understand that titles cannot be copyrighted, but are there any constraints about using a popular song title as the title of a novel. The story line of the novel is not based on the song, but we would like to indicate that it was inspired by it. Thanks.
Dear Mr. Keevil,
You still have to watch out for the law of unfair competition.
