Odd Mozart copyright question

Hi there: Is the phrase "Mostly Mozart" under copyright? I thought I'd use it for our concert next spring but I also don't want to get a howler from Lincoln Center. Thanks! Bill

The phrase is a registered Trademark
however, I'm not enough of a lawyer to tell whether that only applies to products (such as recordings) or if it would extend to a concert consisting of mostly Mozart. I would think that they would not care. Unless, of course, you were setting up a festival with the name and concept Mostly Mozart. The link includes contact info. Ask and let us know the answer!

That's Lincoln Center's performance series.  So yeah, their "product" is concerts.  So, I'd imagine calling your concerts by the same name would be an infringement of the trademark.  Just my two cents.

How about "Mozart & More"?
