Putting copy right onto my username

Hi, I'm Jwarn, changed my username to the username i use everywhere "Jwbjnwolf"

I use Jwbjnwolf on my site jwbjnwolf.weebly.com

on my tumblr blog: jwbjnwolf.tumblr.com

on my youtube: youtube.com/jwbjnwolf

on twitter: twitter.com/jwbjnwolf

my mobile web app: jwbjnwolf.mobapp.at

on instagram, on everything.

On instagram I have 5 accounts:

@_jwbjnwolf

@jwbjnwolfbestpicedits

@jwbjnwolfnatureseverywhere

@jwbjnwolf_artgallery

@jase_wolf

Today when I was stared typing "@jwbjnwolfbestpicedits", I found out that someone else has decided to copy my username obviously to take the P*. They done "@jwbjnwolfbestpiceditf6".

Now my username "jwbjnwolf" is 100% unique to me. No one except me my sister and my mum knows what it stands for, and I like to keep it that way lol. No one and I mean no one that I've found anywhere has used my username, and it really has insulted that someone else has decided to use it.

I know that they done it just to take the mick, and they done a pretty good job on getting me well cheesed off. I am quite insulted by it. I want to use that name as my like brand name what ever you call it if I do become popular youtuber/blogger etc.

So I really want to protect the username "jwbjnwolf". What options do I have? for starters, how much would it cost to get that name "jwbjnwolf" copyrighted/trademarked or what ever the word is you use.

Thanks for any help,

And as always, PCA forums is always ever so delightful to ask/get help from.

So it's not just me then.

I got spooked up like anything when apple certified specialist looked and said to me it must of been hacked.

And what it was, he mis-spelt the URL lol >_<

Jase, yours look alright, must have given you a fright though when Apple Splst. got wrong url.

It's Aitchbee who's got the problem now. I'm sure he will post a new thread about it and won't try to hijack your thread (against forum etiquette) if wants to ask for help and/or advice.

Sorry Jase but no website for me, I'm not clever enough for that. all I do is the occasional blog such as this one from 2009 or this one from 2011 that were written for family and friends to enjoy.
