I'm tired of you. Interoperability aside for a moment, names, 
titles, short phrases, and mnemonics are not copyrightable, 
"even if such expressions are novel, distinctive, or lend 
themselves to a play on words. Similarly, a mere listing of 
ingredients or contents is not copyrightable. See 37 C.F.R. 
202.1(a)."

(BTW, don't miss the definition of "derivative computer program")

alexander.
