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.

First off, it's a really bad idea to splurge all that information all over a public web forum post, but you've done it now.

"how much would it cost to get that name "jwbjnwolf" copyrighted/trademarked or what ever the word is you use."

There's no copyright on a collection of letters strung together, so you can forget about that.

Your chances of registering it as a trademark is also zero, so forget about that, too. Trademark applications are involved and expensive, and your string of letters doesn't satisfy the requirements. For one thing, in order to register a trademark you must be in the business of supplying goods and/or services, and I doubt that you are doing that.

Someone has started using a similar identity to yours, but there's nothing you can do about it, There are more important things in life,

I feel it fair to comment: Aitchbee's another not always on this planet.

Strange he may be to an old fogey like me, but I agree with Aitchbee he does have a lot of talent. Looks like he will be one of those love him or hate him individuals that will break a lot of eggs but may also make a lot of omelettes. At least he has some drive and gumption, but in my working days would I have employed him? Tough question.

Based on the creative evidence of his numerous sites as far as I am concerned. Did you take the time and trouble to go to all his individual site listings and look at them?
