Most people don't understand that a title can be used by anyone, and that it isn't protected under the copyright law.

Copyright does not protect names, titles, slogans, or short phrases. Titles of Books are not copyright protected, and is open to the public domain. The same applies to music copyright. Chords, chord progressions and dynamics in music scores are not copyrighted, they can't be.
