    Are bloggers allowed to use copyrighted phrases?

    I know it's a random question, but are bloggers allowed to use a copyrighted phrase or word as part of their blog (title, main body, etc.)? Or do they need to get permission from the copyright holder?

    Let's say, for example, that I want to write an article about a copyrighted Starbucks drink. Can I use it in the title and text? Or should I give up on the idea altogether?

    Thanks for any help in advance!

    Look into the differences between copyright and trademark. They are very different.

    As a blogger it is incredibly important to know how copyright law works.
