: Here's a situation for you. Suppose someone from an IP

: his/her client wantedlike to buy the name of a

: isn't on record in the 'legal books', but it was
: thought up and used by me for almost a year now. Would
: you sell the name and for how much??
If your program has been used undeer its name commercially, the name has tradmark rights, whether or not you have filed. On the facts there is no way to guess a price.
