    Is there away to legally protect a tittle for a hub you want to use for future use?

    I have a hub that I want to write and I also want to use  it for my web site that I am building. Now, I know that in the past titles for articles can not be copy written but there must be away....

    Have you checked to see whether that title is actually available?

    If it is, then create the hub as a blank and then fill it in when you have the information you need. Hub titles are on a first come first serve basis, so if you create said hub, the title is yours.

    If it isn't - ie, someone else has it already, there's nothing to stop you from using it in your web site, even if you can't use it here.

    No, the title has not been used before AND the reason that I asked the question is that in the past some one used a title I used for a hub and I was told there was nothing I could do about it. Were they mistaken?

    I'm not sure what you are getting at here, but, you used the term legal and I'm guessing you're referring to copyright, there is no copyright in titles; however, if you entitled something, Gone with the Wind, and then wrote a story of Rhet Butler, et al, it would be consdered as passing off.
