Is there any such thing as copyrighting a title?
A title of a novel / short story is usually short, up to five words or so. The words are chosen after much thought to reflect the contents of work. They are often common (everyday) words.
A typical example is a romance novel which may have a title such as "The man who stole my heart".
I understand there may be copyright protection for unusual titles but my question relates to use of common, everyday words in the title, as I have come across many books with the same or similar titles.
