copyright protecting a title?

hey, pretty neat forum...
got a question...
In what cases could a copyright actually protect the name of a work?
I'm currently working on a computer game, and fear that the title of the actual game is in danger of being used by someone else, what can I do to protect the main character's name or title of the game without making a trademark (I'm not finished coding)? (the name of the main character is in the title)
trademarks are very expensive, and I'd like to avoid taking one out if I could get some protection from a copyright
thanks for your time

Dear Omicron,
There is no protection under the copyright law. The trademark law musst be understood and properly used.
